 2014 has already been a busy year for Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo and there are no signs of it quietening down any time soon… with a special limited edition vinyl release for Record Store Day, and Emily writing her first score for a feature film starring Peter Mullan and Keith Allen due in UK cinemas later this year, they have now announced a UK tour for November.

Songs Beneath The River is a special release for Record Store Day, a limited edition 10" vinyl. Recorded at Mark Ronson's Zelig Studios in London, it features four covers of songs which inspired the writing and arrangements on the band's lauded Dear River album.

Touring with their core line-up, Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo features Emily Barker on vocals and guitar, Gill Sandell on accordion, piano and flute, Anna Jenkins on violin and Jo Siverston on cello and bass.
