Sally Barker reduced Tom Jones, and viewers alike, to tears with her flawless performances on BBC’s ‘The Voice’. Whether she is singing to seven million on TV or to 70 people in a club Sally is the consummate professional. It is in live performance that Sally thrives and excels. She has the ability to lift the words off the page as if you were hearing them for the first time, revealing their true meaning.
A seasoned performer, Sally has recorded six solo albums, with song writing influences from folk, jazz, blues and soul, and is well respected for her work with all-female folk group The Poozies. Sally’s years of touring have included countless support slots; Bob Dylan, Robert Plant and Sir Tom amongst them.
Sally remains fiercely independent and true to her craft as she is set to present songs from her new ‘Love Rat’ ep alongside those from albums ‘Maid in England’, ‘Another Train’ and YouTube favourites ‘Dear Darlin’ and ‘To Love Somebody’ – a truly captivating performer as much at home in a folk club as on national television.
To open the evening show Katie Spencer will be joined by Robert Peirson on fretless bass – heartfelt original songs beautifully played by the mesmerising singer songwriter and guest.
