It’s a funny old game…

Life as a musician can be wonderfully interesting and strange in equal measure. From back garden theatres, hand made jazz clubs with polar bears, follies on the farm with cars on top of telegraph poles, television performances at the crack of dawn, radio shows where you can’t speak the right language, hotels with a secret bowling alley and then to top it all off, you find yourself emblazoned across the entrance building of one of Europe’s largest car manufacturers, tiddely pom…

LIVE REVIEW – Phenomenal singing with Jenny Wren and her Borrowed Wings
Podium Café, Peter en Leni, Steendam (NL) – 19/05/2017

Behind the stage of Peter & Leni in Steendam, hiding behind her big double bass and her two band members is the almost unnoticed Jenny Trilsbach. However, the people who previously attended a Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings concert know that this is the spot on the stage to keep an eye on. The band is not named after Paul McCartney’s song, but to the Wren, in the Netherlands the Winter King. A little bird with a huge song to match the phenomenal singing voice of Trilsbach. With ‘Out With The Old’ as the first song there is straight away a head scratching moment, where the audience is completely surprised by a voice that contains so much power and emotion while at the same time being raw and melodic. Jenny-Wren-and-her-B-W
Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings are one of those growing brillants that occasionally come from the British Isles to entertain us with their wonderful mix of blues, R & B with influences of country and soul. Strong point is the vocal, but also fine guitar work by Ben Gallon and soundproofing resonator guitar work by Ben Fisher with the trilbach bassist to complete the trilogy. The formation have just released the new album ‘A Soup’ as a sequel to their debut ‘Dead Man’s Hat’. On stage a wonderful mix of both albums and also new songs coming on the yet to be recorded third album of the trio. Strong point is the change, from ultra sensitive to a true party number and from tortoise to cheetah speed. Especially this was an acoustic concert, only enhanced with microphones on stage and no plugged instruments. It made everything even more beautiful. Strong songs like ‘Twisted Nail’, ‘This Song is A Lie’ and ‘Some Big Deal’ brought the concert to an extremely high level early on. Very impressive that this British band was able to hold that high level of energy for the rest of the concert. The love for the music and wishing to share with the audience was at the forefront. The songs were beautifully spoken by the singer and hope was given for the future. A new album is hopefully on the horizon for next year, and with the beautiful ‘Hard Blues’ and ‘Cast out the Snake’ it looks to be another jewel.
As the concert progresses, n
ice were the transitions too. From the delicate and beautiful ‘Days Gone’, then to the atmosphere being spirited off to New Orleans for party number ‘Dead Man’s Hat’. After the sensitive ‘Wooden Nickels’ and the smooth swinging ‘Bumblebee’, the concert was complete. But because the band clearly have so much fun playing together their music and following applause after applause, they returned with the sensitive ‘Until It’s My Time To Go’ followed after the announcement was called out to Peter van Zeijl, can we do another, by ‘Too Tired’ a highlight from their debut album.

A sensationally beautiful concert.
