BIRMINGHAM with Sally Barker
March 12 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
…with Sally Barker – “Sally, Joni and Sandy” – the songs of Joni Mitchell and Sandy Denny. I’ve recently been working with Sally through IOTA and now we’re embarking on our own duo work which includes this project.
It’ll be really great playing my local city for a change!
Championed by Sir Tom Jones as he (sometimes tearfully) mentored her through to the final of The Voice 2014, Sally has supported Sir Tom, Bob Dylan and Robert Plant amongst others during 30+ years as a fiercely independent respected folk-blues singer/songwriter.
Founding member of revered fem-folksters The Poozies and folk-rock’s reformed Fotheringay, Sally takes time out from new indie-folk trio IOTA to perform classics by Joni Mitchell and Sandy Denny alongside her own songs. New solo album Bearing Witness is due in September.
“Sally changes the atmosphere in a room when she sings” (BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans).
Apparently this cafe is a tranquil oasis in the heart of Kings Heath and they have nice home-cooked food so come early and eat.
