Courtney Barnett

One of our Wise Women - Courtney Barnett spins three hours of her favourite tracks ahead of taking over 6 Music for the evening.

Expect anything from Lizzo to Leonard Cohen.

Across Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, our three Wise Women each get to take over the reins of 6 Music to bring you music and archive.

Boxing Day sees Courtney Barnett spinning three hours of her favourite tracks ahead of taking over 6 Music for the evening with archive shows, documentaries and live music.

The Australian singer-songwriter known for her witty and deadpan delivery released her debut EP, I've Got A Friend Called Emily Ferris in 2012. Her second EP, How To Carve A Carrot Into A Rose (2013) received international acclaim, taking her all around the world.

Debut album - Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit (2015) – was released to widespread acclaim, and in 2016 the musician was nominated for Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards and for International Female Solo Artist at the Brits.

Courtney performed at the BBC 6 Music leg of Biggest Weekend earlier this year prior to releasing her second album - Tell Me How You Really Feel.
