Ruth Barnes and Emily Barker and... a white bunny!
Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo's gorgeous new album Almanac is out in February. We caught up with Emily for half a pint of Christmas Ale at the Betsey Trotwood pub in Farringdon to talk The Waifs, Wallander, pipe organs and the birth of album number 3.

Every week on French Radio London, The Other Woman takes over on a Tuesday evening from 10pm - midnight to play the best in new music from female artists/ female-fronted bands...
This week we were also joined by Zoe Street Howe, author of How's Your Dad? Growing Up In The Shadow Of A Rock Star Parent.
