Sally Barker and Vicki Genfan
Vicki Genfan and Sally Barker met during the 2001 ‘Women on Stage’ tour in Germany and have been firm friends ever since. Vicki Genfan, the first woman to win Guitar Player magazine’s Guitar Superstar Competition, is a dazzling instrumentalist with a high-energy stage presence, who plays and writes with her distinctive percussive ‘slap-tap’ acoustic guitar technique.
Sally Barker, who was personally asked to open for Bob Dylan in Germany, is a singer’s singer and a songwriter’s songwriter. She has the ability to lift the words off the page and can move people to tears armed with that ‘bucket-full of soul’ voice.
Both Vicki and Sally draw their inspiration from folk, jazz, pop, soul and world music and a mutual respect for each other’s talents has prompted them to tour together again.
“If I could play like Vicki, I’d stay home and entertain myself.” – Steve Vai
“[Sally’s] enormous vocal range and stupendous control can relax or rouse at will – she coaxes her voice from that of a mild modern English rose to raw throated blues” – Edinburgh Fringe Festival review
