Emily Barker returns to Music in The Hall after a year which has seen her recently named UK Act of the Year 2018 at the UK Americana Awards ceremony.
This accolade was helped by the tremendous success of Emily's latest album, Sweet Kind of Blue, which was recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service in Memphis with Grammy winning producer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price) and an all-star cast of Memphis session players.
We are very pleased that Emily is joined on the bill by The Ags Connolly Duo and Youth Act Beth Dalton.
Ags is a traditional country singer-songwriter from Oxfordshire, and Country Music people magazine says "Ags Connolly is the best singer-songwriter in the country field that this country has ever turned out.”
