Sally Barker

Details

Sally Barker has been around for decades but her voice just gets better with age. Whether she is singing to seven million on the final of TV's 'The Voice' or to 7 people in a local folk club Sally is the consummate professional. She has the ability to lift the words off the page as if you were hearing them for the first time.
Sally began writing songs and performing at the age of 10, influenced by the likes of John Martyn, Janis Ian, Steeleye Span, Bonnie Raitt and Pentangle. By her late teens Sally was performing folk and blues in pubs and folk clubs in the Midlands with bass player Chris Watson. Later the duo went on to support Steeleye Span, Gordon Giltrap and Roy Harper.
Sally last appeared in the area about 8 years ago when she did an evening of Joni Mitchell songs at The Coliseum Whitby which Musicport also presented. Organiser Jim McLaughlin said “I’ve followed Sally’s career over a lot of years…in fact I have an original vinyl album of hers from the 1980s ! People often are disparaging about TV shows like The Voice but in giving Sally that audience it has reinvigorated her career which was struggling after the premature loss of her husband . Without The Voice one of the great voices of her generation could have been lost”
Singing her own songs plus a careful selection of covers it is bound to be an evening of the highest quality music . Support act Kate Covell-Bullock from Mickleby near Whitby stunned the Musicport Festival crowd last October with a beautiful early morning set on the main stage.
