Song of the Week: “Brambles of Dourlens” by Bess of Bedlam

by Douglas Cowie on 12 July 2019

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “Brambles of Dourlens” by Bess of Bedlam:

Last week I saw Bess of Bedlam at the Servant Jazz Quarters, as part of a bill headlined by Grand Veymont. Her music, as you can hear on this song, pulls folk and baroque influences together with a sense of adventure, and with lyrics that are poetic, playful, and rooted in historical curiosity and feminist politics. It was an enthralling musical performance.
