SHE reduced Tom Jones to tears with her voice and now Sally Barker is to appear at Bury Songwriters’ Circle.

The singer who famously reduced judge, Tom Jones to tears on BBC 1’s The Voice in 2014, is to sing at Bury Songwriters’ Circle on April 20.

Since her success on The Voice brought her to national attention, Sally has been exceptionally busy, touring with folk legends Fotheringay and fitting in numerous solo shows; but she has now found time to schedule a mini solo tour of the North West.

Bury Songwriters’ Circle, based at Walshaw Sports Club, in Sycamore Road, Tottington, has welcomed previous guests including Kirsty Almeida, Stanley Accrington, George Borowski, Quiet Loner, and most recently, former Inspiral Carpets’ front man Tom Hingley.

There are no microphones and the audience is limited to just fifty people.

The blues, jazz, and country singer said: “It’s music without a safety net.

“No electronic aids, no smoke and mirrors, you just get the song and the performance, pure and simple.

“I’ve heard some great things about Bury Songwriters’ Circle and I’m really looking forward to sampling the unique atmosphere.”

Organiser Yvonne Reynolds-Young said: “We’re delighted Sally has agreed to join us.

“We’re looking forward to hearing her songs and experiencing her voice in person.

“It promises to be another great night at Bury Songwriters’ Circle.’

Tickets to the event will be offered to Bury Songwriters’ Circle members first, any remaining tickets will then go on general sale.

Tickets for members are priced at £8.00 or in advance through, and £10 for non members on the door.
