Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo

This is rather lovely.
From 2011's Almanac here are a couple of tracks from Australian native but London based  Emily Barker and her Red Clay Halo.
Emily is on vocals, guitars and assorted percussion and is joined by Gill Sandell mainly on accordion, Jo Silverston on cello (and musical saw!) and Anna Jenkins on violin.
Emily was previously with a band called Low Country and this is her 3rd of 4 albums with the Red Clay Halo.
Nostalgia from her previous album Despite the Snow was the theme to Wallander and Pause from Almanac was the theme to the acclaimed BBC drama The Shadow Line - so  a little theme is clearly  going on there!
Well worth checking out
