Emily Barker (WA) is an award-winning Americana singer-songwriter.

She has released music as a solo artist as well as with various bands and collaborations including The Red Clay Halo, Vena Portae, Marry Waterson and Applewood Road.

Barker’s latest album A Dark Murmuration of Words subtly shifts her sound in the direction of contemporaries such as Laura Marling and Phoebe Bridgers.

Barker’s expressive vocals and warm acoustic aesthetic deliver a timely exploration of the grand themes of our age through the lens of what it means to return ‘home’.

Sunday Music is FAC’s beloved flagship music program, presenting free weekly concerts every week for six months of the year from October to March.

Enjoy a carefully curated lineup of the best local and touring musicians every weekend under the trees in FAC’s stunning Front Garden.

The quality of the acts is perfectly complemented by the relaxed, family friendly atmosphere which makes Sunday Music a staple of summer in Fremantle.

Bring a rug and picnic (no BYO alcohol) or enjoy tasty treats from the food vendors and bar on-site. Some chairs provided.
