DARTFORD Folk Club with Sally Barker
December 3 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
This is a duo gig with my brilliant friend Sally Barker (also in IOTA). We’re doing these dates following the launch of our debut album ‘When I Wake Up’ and we’re really looking forward to singing these original songs to you!
Sally and Anna met through their mutual friends Fairport Convention with whom both have guested and supported on Fairport’s Wintour (at different times).
This tour launches their new album ‘When I Wake Up’. A combination of both songwriters original material.
Sally Barker (vocal, guitar & percussion) sang to millions as Tom Jones’ finalist on The Voice UK but the singer-songwriter has entertained for years as a member of revered fem-folk group The Poozies, in the re-formed Fotheringay and as a solo artist supporting Bob Dylan, Robert Plant and Richard Thompson (and many more). Sally Barker brings any song gloriously to life and also works (at different times) with Americans Vicki Genfan and Brooks Williams and occasionally with Sarah Allen of Flook.
Anna Ryder (vocal, keys, accordion, guitar & banjo) is a musical dynamo; an original and inventive singer-songwriter with a musical style that, although based in folk, spans an array of genres. Amongst others Anna has worked with Fairport Convention, Eddi Reader, Julianne Regan (All About Eve).
Sally and Anna are band mates in the trio IOTA with Marion Fleetwood.
