Cuckoo’s Nest Folk Club presents IOTA (Sally Barker, Anna Ryder, Marion Fleetwood).
Acoustic in the Rainbow Room at Foxlowe Arts Centre 7.30 for 8pm. Tickets £12 from 01538 385260 (answer machine) or from the Foxlowe.
Sally Barker, Anna Ryder & Marion Fleetwood perform as IOTA. All three write, sing and sway in perfect harmony and each is a seasoned performer of the UK Folk/Rock scene.
The three got together in 2017 to form IOTA as it seemed to make perfect sense to combine their experience and talents to write and perform their new and inventive IOTA material.
Sally Barker (vocal, guitar & percussion) sang to millions as Tom Jones’ ﬁnalist on The Voice UK but the singer-songwriter has entertained for years as a member of revered fem-folk group The Poozies, of the re-formed Fotheringay and as a solo artist supporting Bob Dylan, Robert Plant and Richard Thompson. Sally Barker brings any song gloriously to life.
Anna Ryder (vocal, keys, accordion, guitar, dumbek, banjo & french horn) is a musical dynamo; an original and inventive singer and songwriter with a musical style that, although based in folk, spans an array of genres. Though a long-time solo artist, Anna has also worked with, amongst many others, Fairport Convention, Eddi Reader, Julianne Regan (All About Eve) and Rabbit Bundrick (The Who).
With a voice which has been described as ‘mesmerising’ and ‘siren-esque’, the blazingly dynamic Marion Fleetwood (vocal, ﬁddle, cello, guitar & percussion) is a highly respected multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter. Best known as a member of TRADarrr and as a former member of Colvin Quarmby and The Jigantics.
IOTA evoke the spirit and musical energy of the Roches whilst channelling the Supremes, Destiny’s Child and Charlie’s Angels.
