RIDGE ft. The Fugitives
A folk collective headed by songwriters Adrian Glynn and Brendan McLeod, the band has toured extensively through Canada, Western Europe, and the UK. They’re joined by banjo player Chris Suen (Viper Central) and violinist Carly Frey (The Coal Porters). Over the past twelve years, they’ve earned a reputation for unforgettable live shows, brimming with complex harmonies, infectious storytelling and top-notch musicianship.
Trench Songs is The Fugitives fifth record. It was nominated for a JUNO Award for Traditional Roots Album of the Year and two Canadian Folk Music Awards — Ensemble of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year. Its companion theatre piece, Ridge, written by band member Brendan McLeod, was a Globe & Mail “Top Arts Pick of 2020”.
Their 2018 album, The Promise of Strangers, was also nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award and Western Canadian Music Award, and won Best Folk Album of 2019 from the German Music Critic’s Association. Before that, 2013’s Everything Will Happen, spent ten weeks on the top ten Canadian folk charts, and earned them a support slot across Western Canada with Buffy Sainte-Marie and an appearance at UK’s Glastonbury Festival.
The Fugitives are back in the studio, reuniting with Trench Songs producer Tom Dobranzki for an album of new original music, out in summer 2023.
