East London duo Black Scarr are Emma Scarr (vocal/violin) & Johnny Black (vocal/guitar).
Emma's poetic yet earthy lyrics reflect her own experiences and those of people 'not that good at normal life' especially when the ageing process has kicked in. Yes the songs are serious but Emma's wry sense of humour ensures there are times when you will laugh and cry in the same verse! Johnny's tunes are rooted in folk and Americana with great choruses. Believe me there is humour and fun all over the place!
The session, hosted by Jon Bickley, was an immensely enjoyable afternoon spent chatting about music, songwriting and life, and sharing some songs. They tell it like it is, warts and all, you won't be disappointed.
