Bafta and Ivor Novello award winning singer-songwriter Emily Barker blends classical, rock, country and folk influences to stunning effect.
After announcing a break from touring with her longtime backing band The Red Clay Halo, Emily is now busy writing songs for her next solo album. Alongside some old favourites, she will showcase some of her new songs here for the first time, accompanied by Gill Sandell.
Emily released three albums with The Red Clay Halo and her first solo album , Photos.Fires.Fables, has just been re-issued in new
packaging with three bonus tracks. She has also recently composed music for two films that see their release in 2015: The Keeping Room and Hec McAdam.
