Folklore presents… GITTA DE RIDDER + LOUIS BRENNAN + SALT MOON

GITTA DE RIDDER

Anglo-Dutch singer and songwriter Gitta de Ridder sings things as they are. The simplicity of her song-writing leaving the space for her heart-filled vocals to purvey the words in their purest form. Inspired by modern folk artists such as Anais Mitchell and Iron & Wine she has been playing and releasing her songs since late 2014 which led to appearances on Dutch national TV and Radio and support from BBC introducing and several local stations in the UK. An engaging lady who has the ability to mesmerise and draw an audience into the magical world of her songs. A world full of feeling, warmth, kindness, honesty, joy and sadness. Her folk­pop songs with beautifully poetic but also conversational lyrics go straight to the heart and are performed on a bed of warm finger-­picked guitar topped by a voice full of character and emotion.

“Feathers is a holistic singer-songwriting performance of the highest order, gentle, simple yet ultimately stunning” || 4* R2 Magazine ||

“In a world where there’s no shortage of fine female singer/songwriters, make no mistake, de Ridder’s up there with the best of them”
|| ‘Acoustic Magazine UK’ ||

LOUIS BRENNAN

London based Dubliner Louis Brennan is a singer-songwriter in the folk tradition. His folk however aren’t the field hands and travelling minstrels of yore but the repressed middle managers and ennui-ridden urbanites of late stage capitalism. They populate tales of bad sex, half-drunk commutes and interpersonal claustrophobia delivered in Brennan’s cracked baritone, at times embarrassingly intimate, at times spuriously broad, peppered with pitch-black humour.

Brennan has performed in many guises on many stages and is known for a live show that takes the listener on a journey, turning the mirror from himself onto the audience, commanding dynamics as if conducting an orchestra not standing alone with an acoustic guitar.
