Emily Smith

The Arts Centre

Unique Gravity present Emily Smith at the Rose Theatre.

Tickets £12.00 / 10.00 concessions.

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 she 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. Emily 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. 

2011 sees Emily launch ‘Traveller’s Joy’ a stunning new album of songs written and gathered on the road featuring an international flavoured line up of guest musicians.

“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 Magazine
