Musical duo Junk Shop Poets are returning to playing live after taking over a year off with a gig in Lowestoft.

The urban acoustic duo who play mainly self penned songs, played around the east of England for five years before deciding to take a break.

During their year off, singer Jon Peach wrote and recorded an album under the name Love Songs For Losers while bass player Justin Peach expanded his family with a new son born early this year.

The duo will return with a gig at The Tudor Rose in Lowestoft on Saturday, August 25 from 9pm, playing a mix of their classic original songs plus a few brand new ones.

The band are also currently working on writing and recording a new album for an early 2019 release.
