The Barker Band - Sarratt 11 June 2012

Owlsworld Presents: The Barker Band
plus support from David Goo - Acoustic / Comedy / Rock

Following on from their rousing set on the Owlsworld Acoustic Stage at this year's Rickmansworth Festival, where they went down a storm, we are delighted to have The Barker Band playing for us again.

Over the last 5 years The Barker Band has evolved from a band featuring twins Jake & Sam Barker and oldest friend Laurie Sherman into one of the country’s top country-rock bands. The band expanded to include vocalist Nella Johnson, bass player Tom Wright with drummer Ru Shreeve, making up the core of the band. Guitarist Samir Yakoubi, fiddle player Simon Cohen and Dave Fretton playing the keys make up some of the musicians that play with the Barker Band.

They’ve been playing regularly at venues like The Borderline, The Wheelbrarrow, The Boogaloo as well as appearing at festivals including The Camden Crawl and The Innocent Festival in Regent’s Park, South By South West Festival in Austin Texas, Bestival, Glastonbury and Summertyne. They have recently appeared at the Strummerville spring sessions. They have also recorded radio sessions for Bob Harris’s Country Show, Steve Lamacq and the Queens of Noize. In June 09 the band released their 3rd album “Sorry for The Kissing” earning 4 stars from Q mag, and 5 stars from Country Music People magazines and are now set to release their 4th album DIG ME A HOLE.

Support Act: David Goo

Acoustic / Comedy / Rock

A cross between Frank Zappa, early Madness and a Serbian polka orchestra!

One thing the UK has always been proud of is its celebration of eccentricity and that’s where David Goo fits perfectly into an out of box performance.  His live shows are an interactive lyrical journey of downright silly-ness and tickled laughter. The David Goo Variety Band have been gathering a loyal following thought London and the UK festival circuit playing their musically talented and energetic sets to an ever enthusiastic audience.  David is touring his new album release “World Domination” and forthcoming single release of “Keep On Wishing” which is the soundtrack to the TV ads. We are pleased to welcome David back to The Cock Inn.
