Marry Waterson & Emily Barker “Twister” – Listen

Marry Waterson is, of course, part of that seemingly ever expanding Waterson-Carthy English folk dynasty, whilst Emily Barker is the Australian folky singer-songwriter who also dabbles in country, jazz, blues and other genres.  Together they make for an intriguing blend of voices, as demonstrated on their album ‘A Window to Other Ways‘.  ‘Twister‘ describes an odd-ball couple, rejoicing in their differences: “We’ll be fearless in mutual weirdness / Out to lunch deviants, have unusual ingredients / Normal’s too formal, we’re in withdrawal.”  They can be heard with a full band tonight at Kings Place a short stone throw from King Cross Station.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
