More from Emily Barker

It’s been so busy at the Tree House lately that I failed to post this video when it was published, but here it is – the second song that Vena Portae recorded at the bookshop the other week as part of the Big Comfy Sessions – a cover of Peter, Bjorn and John’s Young Folks.  (Emily Barker sang in my bookshop!!!)

The Big Comfy Bookshop opens at the new Fargo Village development in Coventry next weekend (27 September), so that session really was the last to be filmed at the Tree House – I still feel so happy and privileged and honoured that we were able to host these lovely people.

There will be lots more fabulous music at the Big Comfy Bookshop, as well as lots of books, cake, coffee and much more, and I wish Michael all the very best in his own exciting new venture.  The Tree House is doing so well these days, and I hope the Big Comfy Bookshop will be equally successful – it’s so great that new bookshops are still opening and disproving the media gloom about the apparent demise of books and bookshops.  People still love books!  And bookshops are great places for music, films and all sorts of community events.

Speak, Brother

Here is the latest video from one of the Big Comfy Sessions.  I’ve already shared Speak, Brother’s wonderful version of their own song Dry Bones (follow that link for more of the sessions too); this is the cover version they did the same day (all performers are asked to sing one of their own songs and one cover version).  This is Peter Katz’s Son.  Beautiful.

 

 

The Big Comfy Bookshop will open at Fargo Village in Coventry on 27th September – in the meantime, we are loving having the Big Comfy Sessions at the Tree House!
