A perfect & unique comeback gig for Jumpin’ Hot Club,
We have Australian singer/songstress Emily Barker (duo) coming here to play a one – off full live show. We also have the American singer songwriter’s Brennen Leigh & Noel McKay performing a live stream from their studio in Nashville USA, directly into the Gosforth Civic Theatre. This stream will be opening act of our comeback show
Emily Barker has agreed to come up & play an exclusive show. The Australian songstress has been quite a regular visitor over the years. However her star is still powerfully on the rise as only last week she was performing a unique live stream with Frank Turner, the high profile indie folk singer. Emily you might remember as the award-winning songwriter and performer of the theme to BBC TV’s “Wallander”. Her sixth album release, A Dark Murmuration of Words came out during lockdown & is a timely exploration of climate change, racism, sexism, and myths of economic progress through the lens of what it means to return “home.” Her music is a blend of everything roots from country to English folk via sixties pop/soul.
Nashville based American songwriters Brennen Leigh & Noel McKay are regular visitors here too. They have secured a small studio & we are going to stream an exclusive live set from USA, directly onto our screen in GCT. Their music is world class Bluegrass /Country, just in case you didn’t know !
