Winner of the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award for ‘Best Emerging Artist in 2018, Emma Langford has wasted no time making her mark on the Irish & international folk scene.
Emma is described by song-writing legend Phil Coulter as 'a breath of fresh air'. Noted for a vocal timbre which dances playfully among the nuances of “folk”; her voice is at once defiant and ethereal; her lyrics insightful yet loaded with wit and whimsy. Comparisons are often drawn in style and sound to historically famed songwriters such as Joni Mitchell and Janis Ian.
Hailing from Limerick City in the South-West of Ireland her fusion of home-grown brazen wit and piercingly insightful lyrics combine to create the enthralling live presence for which the young artist has become so well known.
The Irish Times describe Emma Langford’s debut album Quiet Giant as ‘music that weaves a spell as you listen to it'.
