Emily's new album 'Echoes' is now on general release. You can order it from all good record retailers instore and online.
It's making a big impact so far....
"the freshest sounding folk album in an age"
"bursting with joy and talent"
"Echoes has started a murmur that will echo in my heart for years to come. If you could tune out the background noise for a few seconds you would hear it repeated with a steady beat up and down the land, because make no mistake this is a great record and it won’t be just me that thinks so.”

“An absolute triumph….I love this album to bits. My favourite CD of the year “
Well, here we go again!
I'm looking forward to playing some of my favourite songs and also a bunch of tunes from both my and Matheu's albums. Much mirth and energy will abound...
The following day, I head up to Glasgow to play at Celtic Connections with Emily Smith. We play Monday night as part of a special BBC Radio2 Live broadcast, with Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott, Aoife O'Donovan and Mary-Chapin Carpenter.
Tuesday has Emily play her own show in the Fruitmarket as a double bill with Tim and Darrell. We'll have the full 5 piece band, myself, Matheu, Signy Jakobsdottir on Percussion and Ross Hamilton on Bass. Also joining us will be the VERY awesome Jerry Douglas, Aoife O'Donovan and Rory Butler.
Our last show is at the Royal Concert Hall on Wednesday as part of the fabulous Woman's Heart concert, with Eleanor McEvoy and Sharon Shannon among others. It'll be a bit of a special night I'm sure and a fitting way for us to finish up at the festival!
Hopefully I'll see some of you over the next week!
Emily continues to draw on her talent as one of the finest interpreters of traditional song in the UK presenting an album that is unshakeably Scottish but with farther, wider horizons...Learn More
