Storytelling sits at the heart of everything Emma Langford does; interweaving her live performances, and shining through her recorded works. Hers is an inimitable, dreamy voice in the new wave of Irish folk.
Langford was awarded the RTÉ Folk Award for Best Emerging Artist in 2018, and in 2020 and 2021 was shortlisted for Best Folk Singer. She received the Music Network RESONATE residency, and Arts Council Agility Award in ’21 to support her continuing musical exploration of women in Irish history.
Emma has written and independently released two highly acclaimed albums, Quiet Giant (2017) & Sowing Acorns (2020), laying the groundwork for a bright, busy future. As part of an international tour, 2019 saw Langford make her US debut at the world’s largest celebration of Irish music, Milwaukee Irish Fest.
