BAFTA award-winning songwriter Emily Barker visits Lancashire this month.

Emily, who won her BAFTA for the theme to BBC crime drama Wallander, is at Burnley Mechanics on Wednesday, March 25.

After announcing a break from touring with longtime backing band The Red Clay Halo, Emily is now writing songs for her next solo album.

Alongside old favourites, she will showcase some of her new songs here for the very first time, accompanied by Gill Sandell.

Emily released three albums with The Red Clay Halo (“Despite The Snow”, “Almanac” and “Dear River”). Her first solo album was “Photos.Fires.Fables.” which has just been re-issued in new packaging with three bonus tracks.

Support on the night comes from Ciaran Lavery. Tickets, priced at £12, can be bought by ringing 01282 664400 or online at
