SOUTHAMPTON with Sally Barker
November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm£13.30 - £16.50
In this new show ‘Sandy, Joni & Me’ SALLY BARKER and ANNA RYDER are delighted to bring some of the songs of both Joni Mitchell and Sandy Denny to the stage, exploring the singer/songwriter legacy that was forged in the early ’70s.
Veteran folk-blues singer/songwriter Sally Barker (lead vocal, guitars & percussion) became Tom Jones’ finalist on The Voice UK 2014 after reducing her mentor to tears with her performances.
Sally has toured with Sir Tom, Bob Dylan and Robert Plant and DJ Chris Evans said, “Sally changes the atmosphere in a room when she sings”.
Sally is joined by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Anna Ryder (vocal, keys, guitars & banjo) who has worked with Fairport Convention, Eddi Reader and Julianne Regan (All About Eve). Although it is based in folk, Anna’s musical style crosses genres.
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.
