Genfan & Barker
Thursday 14th November
plus Steve Hicks and Dillon Wakeford
Vicki Genfan and Sally Barker met during the 2001 'Women on Stage' tour of Germany and have been firm friends ever since. Genfan, the first woman to win Guitar Player magazine’s Guitar Superstar Competition, is a dazzling instrumentalist, with a high-energy stage presence, who plays and writes with her distinctive percussive 'slap-tap' acoustic guitar technique. Sally Barker, who was personally asked to open for Bob Dylan on his 1990 German tour, has the ability to lift the words off the page and can move people to tears armed with that 'bucket-full of soul' voice.
Both Vicki and Sally draw their inspiration from folk, jazz, pop, soul and world music and a mutual respect of each other's talents has prompted them to tour together again. Each will perform their own show, supported by the other when called upon, and then combine their talents with a stunning set of vituosity to bring the evening to a stupendous climax!
“If I could play like Vicki, I’d stay home and entertain myself.” - Steve Vai
“Her enormous vocal range and stupendous control can relax or rouse at will – she coaxes her voice from that of a mild modern English rose to raw throated blues.” - a review of Sally at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
