Ver­sa­tile singer re­turns to Blue Sky

Bangor Mail - - Your Guide -

EMILY Barker, an award-win­ning singer­song­writer, best known as the writer and per­former of the theme to the BBC’s crime drama Wal­lan­der star­ring Ken­neth Branagh, will be at Ban­gor’s Blue Sky Cafe on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 4.

She has re­leased mu­sic as a solo artist as well as with var­i­ous bands in­clud­ing The Red Clay Halo, Vena Por­tae and Ap­ple­wood Road (with whom she re­leased an al­bum of orig­i­nal songs recorded live around a sin­gle mi­cro­phone) and has writ­ten for film, in­clud­ing com­pos­ing the sound­track for Jake Gavin’s de­but fea­ture Hec­tor star­ring Pe­ter Mul­lan and Keith Allen.

As a per­former, Barker is cap­ti­vat­ing and ac­com­plished, with an adept un­der­stand­ing of au­di­ences that finds her equally at home tour­ing with punk trou­ba­dour Frank Turner as she is with Amer­i­can mul­ti­Grammy-win­ning mu­si­cian Mary Chapin Car­pen­ter.

Most re­cently, Barker has re­leased an al­bum of col­lab­o­ra­tions with English folk leg­end Marry Water­son.

A Win­dow to Other Ways is out now on One Lit­tle In­dian Records.

Last time Emily played Blue Sky her gig sold out so it may be a good idea to buy tick­ets early…

Tick­ets at £12 di­rectly from the Cafe in per­son, on­line at we­gottick­ets. com/event/479959 (10% ad­min fee ap­plies) or maybe on the door on the night.

Doors 7pm.

Gig starts 8pm.
