Event description

Description

We are thrilled to announce that Emma Langford and her band will be playing Nelliefreds, Dingle on Saturday 3rd of March. Doors 10pm

Emma Langford is a folk guitarist and singer-songwriter from Limerick. Her distinctive vocal style blends Irish lilt with folk and jazz, while her guitar work delicately complements an intuitive sense of melody; Langford has woven a sound which Phil Coulter describes as “a breath of fresh air”.

The artist’s wry and insightful penmanship combined with a cheerful stage-demeanour prove a winning combination, creating an engaging live presence. She has shared a stage with internationally recognised artists such as Ron Sexsmith, Eddi Reader, Declan O’Rourke, Roisín O and Hermitage Green, to name but a few.

In 2016 Emma successfully crowd-funded and launched her debut EP which was toured at sold-out dates across the country. The record received airtime on 2fm, RTÉ Radio1, LyricFM, and Newstalk. She recently completed a hugely successful month-long tour of Germany and Switzerland with the Irish Folk Festival, receiving rave reviews and breaking records for CD sales. Her debut album “Quiet Giant” described by Today Fm’s Ed Smith as “absolutely stunning” was released in October along with a music video accompanying the album's single, Closed Book.

Langford was named "Best Solo Female Artist" for 2017 by Pure M Magazine, and was listed as Hot Press Magazine's one-to-watch in the summer of 2016.

“A breath of fresh air… Very easy on the ear.”
