Emily Smith & Jamie McClennan
Multi award winning Scottish folk singer Emily Smith and New Zealand born multi-instrumentalist Jamie McClennan return to tour NZ in Feb 2015 with their inspiring blend of traditional and original folk songs and instrumentals. Emily’s beautiful voice eases tired ears and lifts souls with its simple beauty. She also plays accordion and piano. Performing with long time musical partner Jamie McClennan on guitar, fiddle and backing vocals, they are a highly talented duo presenting the best of Scottish folk music. Kiwi born Jamie moved to Scotland in 2000 and has worked with Emily for over ten years, and together they have toured all over the world. TV appearances include BBC Four’s Transatlantic Sessions, BBC One’s Songs of Praise, Scotland’s Hogmanay Live, NZ’s Good Morning Show and an exclusive performance for Sky Arts Channel. In 2014 Emily released her much-anticipated new album ‘Echoes’, produced by Jamie. This is Emily`s fifth studio album, capturing her as one of the finest interpreters of traditional song in the UK. Unshakably Scottish but with farther, wider horizons, their new material sees time worn texts weave beautifully alongside contemporary covers blurring the borders of old and new to create her finest album yet.
