LEICESTER Musician with Sally Barker
December 11, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
We did this gig not long ago doing Joni Mitchell and Sandy Denny songs. It went down well so we have been asked back to do it again!
Thought I would put a nice cartoon of my IQ pedal in the meantime for you to look at.
Sally and Anna met through their mutual friends Fairport Convention with whom both have guested and supported on Fairport’s Wintour (at different times).
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.
