Emily Barker has always been aware that she stands on the shoulders of giants.

A female artist in a male-dominated industry, she makes use of space broken down by trailblazers of the past.

New album Sweet Kind Of Blue arrives on 19 May, and it’s a sweet and tender distillation of Americana influences. Blues meets country meets gospel, Emily’s songwriting seems to capture a world that belongs both in the past and the present.

New cut Sister Goodbye is a salute to one of her true heroes, a female artist who broke down barriers, Sister Rosetta Thorpe.

Doors: 1.45pm | Unreserved Seating
