Tarry Awhile
Now a widely known singer/songwriter and guitarist in her own right, Gill also plays accordion, piano and flute — and sings backing vocals — as a part of Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo, as well as playing regularly with other musicians and bands. Her lyrical modernist folk conceals a dry wit and some darkly complex and carefully nuanced songwriting...  > 

"This is gorgeous, what a beautiful record." Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
"A beautiful sounding record, beautifully sung and arranged." Cerys Matthews, BBC 6 Music
"One of the UK’s finest contemporary folk groups."
Folk Radio UK


Gill's second album Light The Boats was released on 16 September 2013. Many tracks have had radio airplay, by Cerys Matthews, Bob Harris and Dermot O’Leary among others.

The album was a Folk Radio UK Featured Album of the Month, and went on to be chosen as one of their Best Albums of 2013. Gill talked about the background to the songs in an in-depth interview with FRUK's Simon Holland. More review links on the Reviews page.

Gill toured songs from the new album – and more – from Teesdale to the West Country to a sold-out launch party at the Green Note in London. Afterwards she said: "All the gigs went really well and the album launch in London was a perfect way to end the tour, with so many friends there supporting us."
