Bridget Ball: Bricks and Windows

[cover art]

Like many of today's folk artists, Bridget Ball began her performing career in college, by playing cover tunes in tap rooms and pizza joints to earn a little extra money. By the time she graduated, she felt she had found her profession, and her first album, Duffy Rose, was named one of the top ten albums of 1988 by WUMB in Boston, one of the country's premier acoustic radio stations. Inspired by research that points to the pre-teen years as a time when girls often suffer a plummeting loss of self-esteem, Bridget has developed a much-lauded program of songwriting workshops called "Sisters and Friends", to give girls an opportunity to speak up and sing out. In addition to her performances and recording work, Bridget also manages, with her husband, Adirondack folk singer Christopher Shaw, Twining Tree, a small acoustic label she founded with Chris to produce and market their own recordings. Bridget's latest release, Bricks and Windows, features such notable players as John Sebastian, Garth Hudson, Artie Traum, and Cindy Cashdollar. Dirty Linen has called it "a momentous release" by "a strong contemporary songwriter to be reckoned with".
