Above The Parapet - Boro’s political song night returns for a special one-off gig to launch the fantastic Joe Solo’s new album ‘Left Turn on Liberty Lane’ with support from the brilliant Ribbon Road and Rebekah Findlay.
Joe is a brilliant performer and a regular face on Teesside – his blistering mixture of folk, punk and blues once seen is never forgotten. Live performances are an explosion of guitar, song, harmonica and shakers combining powerful call-to-arms with softer, sweeter songs about human nature, solidarity and friendship. He is a truly unique performer who has a growing reputation as both a performer and raconteur, being thought-provoking, comical and punch-the-air political often in the same breath. He is not an artist you forget in a hurry.
Ribbon Road’s latest album ‘No Redemption Songs’ is a stunningly, beautiful collection of songs inspired by Keith Pattison’s evocative black and white photographs of the Miners Strike 1984/5 at Easington Colliery and made to mark the 30th anniversary of the Strike. Ribbon Road’s sound is based on tight harmonies and a powerful directness often missing in contemporary song, their eight albums have resulted in a striking collections of songs in which there is compassion, triumph, sorrow and hope, mixed with flares of anger at those who abuse their power.
Rebekah Findlay is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and a singer of genuine quality. She has a captivating live presence with a voice that is commanding, authoritative and fearless, and yet capable of amazing degrees of tenderness when the lyric calls for that quality and shading. She is also a superb fiddle and accordian player and will join Joe Solo onstage with her fiddle to finish off the night.
