Sairie and Joy Becker at The Harrison
Sairie are Emma Morton (vocals, autoharp), Jon Griffin (vocals, guitar) and Andy Thomas (bass). Jon and Emma met through playing in Lutine together, and went on to form Sairie.
Sairie are from East Sussex, and have a shared love of folklore, dark tales, mystery, nature and landscape. They released their first single of the traditional song The Gairdner in February 2019 and their new EP, Scarlet and Blue is a collection of original folk songs.
Joy Becker is an emerging contemporary folk artist whose music gives voice to the vulnerability of being human. Her songs have been described as ‘word paintings’ and her honest and raw voice compared to the likes of Joni Mitchell and Jeff Buckley.
Originally trained as a violinist, her classical roots bleed into her music and make her a musician with unique insight and depth.
