A Union Music Store Presentation

We're over the moon to be welcoming back to Lewes, Emily Barker with her full band playing her new Memphis album 'Sweet Kind of Blue'.

Emily Barker is best known as the writer and performer of the award-winning theme to the hit BBC drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh. Growing up in rural Western Australia, Barker fell in love with American roots music from the soul of Aretha Franklin to the country of Gillian Welch and Emmylou Harris. Her travels led her to settling in the UK, where she has released a succession of critically acclaimed albums with her former band The Red Clay Halo, side-project Vena Portae and country-folk trio Applewood Road with Amy Speace and Amber Rubarth.

Her new solo album Sweet Kind of Blue was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with Grammy winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell, Mary Chapin Carpenter). From country-soul ballads to the unfettered joy of the bluesy 'Sunrise', the album has been lauded as Barker’s best yet and features contributions from some of Memphis' finest musicians.

For this UK tour, Emily has brought together a band of some of the best young musicians in the UK - Pete Roe (keys, guitar, vocals), Lukas Drinkwater (bass, vocals) and Rob Pemberton (drums, vocals).

Pete Roe will also play a solo set to open.
