Emily Smith - Sngs for Christmas

Details

Multi award winning singer Emily Smith is a leading figure of the Scottish folk scene. For over a decade she has entertained audiences all over the world with her blend of traditional and original songs. Unshakeably Scottish but with farther, wider horizons, Emily’s music sees time worn texts weave beautifully alongside contemporary material, blurring the borders of old and new. Emily’s beautiful voice eases tired ears and lifts souls with its simple beauty. She also plays accordion and piano.

Emily has performed and recorded with many musical greats from the folk scene and beyond including Barbara Dickson, Richard Thompson, Eddi Reader, Jerry Douglas and Beth Nielsen Chapman. She was a guest singer on the Transatlantic Sessions’ live tour in 2013, alongside Mary Chapin Carpenter, Teddy Thompson and Aoife O’Donovan.

Her long term musical collaborator, and husband, Jamie McClennan has accompanied her throughout her career on guitar and fiddle and in recent years produced several of her albums. Originally from New Zealand, Jamie moved to Scotland in 2002 and initially joined Emily’s band line up on fiddle.
2017 saw Emily and Jamie celebrate 15 years of making music together.

Emily has released eight studio albums, most recently ‘Songs For Christmas’ (2016). Her original song ‘Find Hope’, was selected as part of the BBC Radio 2 official December playlist. From humble beginnings in a rural farm shop her annual Christmas tour is now in its sixth year and selling out theatres across the UK. ‘Songs for Christmas’ will be at Threlkeld Village Hall on Friday 7th December at 8pm. Bar and Box Office from 7:15pm. Tickets are £15 (£8 under 18s) from the village hall, PO and on-line at www.threlkeldvillagehall.org/whats-on
