ESTABLISHED folk musician and The Voice finalist Sally Barker will be performing live in Cumbria.

The solo performer, who also fronts all-female group The Poozies, appears at Carlisle Folk And Blues Club on Friday, June 16.

As a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer, she has had a long and varied music career.

In January 2014, she appeared on the BBC One talent contest The Voice, joining Tom Jones' team after a blind audition in which she sang Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood.

In the final, she sang Joni Mitchell's Both Sides, Now and duetted with Tom Jones on Walking in Memphis, eventually finishing runner-up to Jermain Jackman.

Since her appearance on the Voice, Sally's back catalogue has seen a resurgence in sales, and her album Another Train featured in the official indie charts.

Having sung the Olly Murs' song Dear Darlin' during the TV competition, it was subsequently released by Universal, and was the highest-charting single from that year's finalists.

She is performing at the Ex Services Men's Club in Albert Street, Carlisle, and will be joined by singer-songwriter Paul Handyside.

Doors open at 7.30pm, and tickets can be booked in advance by contacting Ted Muir on 07760 218116.
