Australian Emily Barker is a compelling songwriter with a gift for weaving melody and words. Together with her band The Red Clay Halo, she has recorded three albums, dazzled audiences at music festivals and seen her song ‘Nostalgia’ become the Bafta-winning theme tune to BBC One drama Wallander. New album Almanac was released this year, attracting great praise and featured as the theme to BBC 2 drama The Shadowline.

“This is a dream of a record. A new Marling, then? No, Barker offers something else…” BBC Music editor’s choice Feb 2011

Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo will be supported by Gill Sandell.
