We had a fine day in Münster on Saturday, and the concert at Heile Welt was great.
Tonight, the tour continues to Münster to play at Heile Welt. Looking forward to it…
Tonight we are returning to the wonderfully fun Grevenblues club in Grevenbroich, Germany. We begin the evening with a concert and then Blues the night away with a rocking Blues Jam.
We have made it across the water to our friends in Europe, and today we start our super duper tour!
Tonight we begin at one of our favourite’s, Jazz Lev @topos in Leverkusen…
Thank you to the Rock Doctor for giving our new album 4+ stars on the Hot Wax Album Review this month…
THE GIRL ON THE BIKE (ARE YOU THE GIRL ON THE BIKE?)
Jenny Wren And Her Borrowed Wings
Hot Wax Album Reviews
by The Rock Doctor
Mesmerising percussion-free acoustic blues here for this trio’s 3rd album. Jenny Trilsbach (vocals, double bass), Ben Fisher (resophonic guitar, vocals) and Ben Gallon (acoustic guitar, vocals) play with an intuitive togetherness that works its way right into your heart via your ear canals. You’ll want to drink it all in.
Why blues and roots music that comes back from the UK seems cooler is baffling, but once again that’s the case with Girl On The Bike. Quirky title yes, but seriously excellent playing. Fine guitar work from the two Bens, and Jenny’s slinky bass lines are the back bone on which everything hangs. Her passionate vocals are the star, delivering compelling stories in a way that stick with you.
On first seeing the album cover I wasn’t sure I would like this, but it’s delightfully cool, even without drums. On songs like Balls Mad and I’m Gone they hold nothing back, and a lament like 44 Years is emotionally deep. Perhaps it’s the sparseness of the arrangement and production, the lyrics themselves, or both, but there’s an emotional darkness and weight to Girl On A Bike that will touch you. This is really good.
Take the Rock Doctor’s advice and drink in our new album here…
Just a few more days until we set sail for our super duper month long European tour. Visiting old favourites and discovering new ones, we can’t wait!
Our last gig in the UK before we set sail for our European tour next week..
TODAY! Ease into the end of the week with Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings at Plaquemine Lock. We will be playing our heartfelt music from 6PM.
