Jenny Wren & Her Borrowed Wings take it back to the 40s and even the prohibition era with some good time, old time Blues on their long player, The Girl on The Bike (Are You the Girl on The Bike?). The album opens with ‘Balls Mad’, a Bluesy shuffler that really sets the tone. You could almost picture this song being performed in the speakeasies and establishments of ill repute throughout the prohibition era. ‘Showtime’ and ‘The Dirty Disease’ are further powerful R&B statements from this English combo. They showcase the prowess of the Borrowed Wings as they perform acoustic instruments with great proficiency and rhythm, a Blues masterclass. ‘So Much More’ brings the lowdown bass and adds a hard edge and grit to proceedings and ‘Cast Out the Snake’ provides one of the highlights of the record with a jazzed-up bombardment of rootsy musicianship – exceptional. The title track is a seductively charming laid-back number and ‘Hard Blues’ conveys a hard time, bad luck story through sheer Blues balladry.
The album winds down with more Americana Blues in ‘Devil’s Paw’, ‘I’m Gone’, and ’44 Years’. The closing number is the countrified ‘Get Where It Goes’ which provides one final touching moment on the record which is a real highlight to see us out.

We did it! Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings’ tour has come to an end, and we are safely home to dear old Blighty.
It has been such a wonderful time, we loved it all.
26 concerts, 3 countries, 2600 miles on the roads and many hundreds more on the trains. What a ride!
Thank you to all of the great people we have met, all of the kindness we have received, the excellent venues that invited us to play, and to the many, many listening ears that have been digging our sounds the most. It means so much to us.
Now to sleep… zzzzzzzz
The last concert of our month long tour of Europe. It was a very special grand finale for us, a packed theatre in the beautiful countryside in the Netherlands.
Thank you so much to the wonderful owners of the theatre for being so very kind and thoughtful to us, and to everyone who travelled to see us on our last show of the tour. It was magical!
It’s the grand finale of Jenny Wren and Her Borrowed Wings’ tour today. We are returning to the very special hidden gem of Speelplaats in Baars, Netherlands. A wonderful theatre nestled in the countryside.
We can’t wait!
