gig tomorrow in Portsmouth - Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo

The title tells it all really - but I gotta write something... Emily Barker live at The Cellars on Wednesday night; I'll be there with me camera at the ready, but mostly to enjoy the music.

You can expect gorgeous acoustic country/folk, accompanied by guitar, accordion, cello & violin; and that voice - ohh! - just beautiful.

The usual clumsy review, & with luck, some photos on Thursday; also a couple of mp3s from Emily's 2008 album - 'Despite the Snow', which you can buy here. Meantime, here's a taster from 2007 - hear more on myspace.

Fields of June - Emily Barker

Continuing the thread of which songs from my mental jukebox accompany any given activity; there's only one choice for this, no matter how blimmin' obvious.

See Emily Play - Pink Floyd
UK single (1967), also on US pressing of 'The Piper at the Gates of Dawn'

See Emily Play - David Bowie
Pin Ups (1973)
