Let in the Light
Preservation New Jersey is pleased to present singer-songwriter Emily Barnes in the beautiful setting and acoustics of the historic landmark 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing!
Emily Barnes is a nationally touring folk singer/songwriter from North West New Jersey. Living out of her “transcendental van Ralph Henry,” she has tackled 30+ states in the past 6 months alone. Her visit to the 1867 Sanctuary is part of her releasing her sophomore album Let in the Light.
Like the 200 year-old house she sometimes rests her head in, Emily is an old soul and her live performances stand the test of time. There is a feeling one gets when witnessing something authentic and rare, and that aura permeates the room at an Emily Barnes show. Her debut album Beautiful Goodbyes was released in January 2014, her duo album Closer to Home in 2015, and her highly anticipated follow up solo album “Let in the Light” is available for pre-order from her web site.
Hushed acoustic strings that induce sways; a lilting voice that establishes intimacy and seeps into the soul. “Beautiful Goodbyes,” the debut album from Johnsonburg’s Emily Barnes, is a sojourn into the heart and mind of the 22-year-old singer/songwriter. – NJ Herald
