RIBBON ROAD at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Edinburgh FC is pleased to welcome back Ribbon Road from NE England for their third gig. Ribbon Road sing beautifully crafted songs drawing from folk music's long tradition yet relevant to our ever-changing modern times. Based on tight harmonies and simple instrumental arrangements which accentuate the words, their sound has a powerful directness often missing in contemporary song.

For the last 26 years, Brenda Heslop has been one of the undiscovered talents of songwriting, she has a captivating voice which draws the listener in to her stories of life in its many guises. Her 11 studio albums with Ribbon Road have resulted in a stunningly beautiful collection of songs in which there is compassion, triumph, sorrow and hope, mixed with flares of anger at those who abuse their power.

Folk songwriters have always written songs about the people and things around them - their stories, their feelings, their experiences and Brenda carries on this tradition.

Brenda's husband, Geoff, might be a familiar name to you from his work in producing over 100 folk albums in the last 40 years for the likes of Bert Jansch, Kathryn Tickell, Rab Noakes, Alan Hull, Five Hand Reel, Dick Gaughan, Rory McLeod, Allan Taylor ... and many others.

Song writer Brenda Heslop has a secret, and she will whisper it in your ear: but its a shocking secret and its effect on you is much greater than you expect from a whisper. True, Brendas secrets are in song, but the effect of her quiet vocals and harmonies with husband Geoff whacks you in the lug-hole and makes you pay attention (The Living Tradition magazine).
