The glorious Mrs Yarrington’s Music Club has an outing on Tuesday at the Senlac Inn, Battle, with a performance by Big World Blue.

Big World Blue write songs of emotional depth and beauty. More akin to a musical landscape than a song, their tracks journey effortlessly through pagan tinged stories, heart-opening hope and deeper realities of life with ethereal mystique. In you think Sigur Ros or Mike Oldfield you are getting the drift of what Big World Blue is all about.

Whether recorded or live, the combined magical alchemy of Martyn Barker - a critically acclaimed musician who has recorded with Robert Plant, Marrianne Faithful, and Goldfrapp, and Jo Beth Young - a singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist - grab listeners from the first few notes and plunges them deep with a combination of haunting vocals and journeying instrumentation. Together they have worked with the likes of Chris Difford, and Henry Thomas, and have released EP Big World Blue.

It is hard to pin down what genre or influence is behind them, hints of Psychedelia, Progressive Rock, Dark Folk and World Music all shine through, but above all they are rare in today’s musical worl, described by Fatea magazine as ethereal and intricately complex.
