EMILY SMITH

Emily Smith is a leading light of the contemporary Scottish folk scene. Her powerful, clear vocals have gained her award winning, worldwide recognition. As a songwriter Emily has been likened to "a Scottish Joni Mitchell", but as a collector she is equally adept at presenting fresh and evocative interpretations of traditional songs.

She has worked with artists such as Richard Thompson, Beth Nielsen Chapman and Eddi Reader. Recent TV appearances include Transatlantic Sessions 4 and BBC Songs of Praise.

"As far as I'm concerned she can walk on water"Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

"Smith could become to Scottish folk what Joni Mitchell is to its Californian cousin"Q

"Smith deserves to become yet another new folk celebrity"The Guardian
