Emily Barnes

Friday - March, 23 @ 8:00pm

Tucked away in a town so tiny it isn't found on most maps,  singer-songwriter Emily Barnes can be found sitting on the stone steps of her 200 year old home stitching together the latest melody from the fabric of her mind.  That is on the rare occasion she is home.  For the past few years, Emily has been tirelessly trekking down the open road playing venues of all shapes and sizes stopping listeners dead in their tracks with a voice that cuts to the bone and songs that pull on the heart strings.

Now a nationally touring artist, Barnes continues to build a grassroots following from city to small town, one new believer at a time.  Her Sophomore album 'Let in the Light' was released on March 10th 2017 and has been taking listeners through the nostalgia of finding oneself after the inevitable darkness seeps in. It is honest, it is raw, and as quirky as the show you are likely to experience. With an assortment of "found" instruments, lo-fi birds, pots and pans, this album paints a picture from start to finish.

There is a feeling one gets when witnessing something authentic and rare, and that aura permeates the room at an Emily Barnes show.
