Versatile singer returns to Blue Sky
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.
Gig starts 8pm.
