About this event

With performances that celebrate a national tradition of storytelling, Emma Langford delivers songs that are a dreamy blend of folk, jazz and traditional Irish music.

Langford was awarded the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award for Best Emerging Artist in 2018, and in 2020 was shortlisted in the category of Best Folk Singer. This year she is longlisted for the 64th Grammys, and shortlisted again for the RTÉ Folk Awards. Never one to shy from hard work, she made the bold but rewarding move of releasing an album at the height of a pandemic - 'Sowing Acorns' landed in September 2020 and received huge international praise.

In 4 short years Emma has written and independently released two highly acclaimed full-band records, 'Quiet Giant' (2017) and 'Sowing Acorns' (2020), which laid the groundwork for a bright and busy future. While touring ground to a halt as a result of the pandemic, the artist quietly climbed her way up the charts across iTunes and Irish radio with her epic folk ballad Birdsong; collaborated with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra; joined the hugely successful Irish Women In Harmony lineup; and flexed her musical theatre skills in the lead role of Aedan Cara, the "last princess of Ireland" on musical-theatre concept album, 'Colours', which was released in April 2021.

Having bided her time long enough, this year she is sharing the album live on stage with growing audiences throughout Ireland, Austria and Germany, accompanied by a vibrant host of backing musicians. 2022 will see her take part in the Irish Women in Harmony national tour.

She was most recently artist in residence at the Ionad Cultúrtha in the Irish-speaking region of Ballyvourney in Cork, with support from the inaugural RESONATE Residency in association with the Arts Council of Ireland and Music Network. Through this residency she began to work on a new cross-genre album focusing on women in Irish history, bringing Ireland's past into the present through modern interpretations of these stories. This work is ongoing and she is on a constant search for new stories to bring to light.
