Emily Smith

Emily Smith is one of the leading singers in the Scottish folk scene today. Her powerful, clear vocals have gained her award winning recognition in the folk scene worldwide. With song writing that has been compared to that of Joni Mitchell and presenting fresh, new interpretations of traditional songs she is carving her own path in the current resurgence of folk music. She won the BBC Radio Scotland’s Young Traditional Music of the Year Award in 2002 and has recorded four albums since. She was named ‘Scots Singer of the Year’ by public vote at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2008 and recently performed on BBC1’s Songs of Praise. “As far as I’m concerned she can walk on water.” Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
