About Emma Langford

Emma Langford

Music Icon

Emma Langford calls Limerick City in the West of Ireland home. Storytelling sits at the heart of everything this songwriter does; interweaving her live performances, and shining through her works. Hers is an inimitable, dreamy voice at the frontline of a new wave of Irish folk. Langford received a Folk Award in 2018 from Ireland’s national broadcaster, RTÉ, for Best Emerging Artist, and in following years was twice nominated for Best Folk Singer. She received the Music Network RESONATE residency, and Arts Council Agility Award in 2021 to support a continuing musical exploration of women in Irish history. Since 2017 Emma has written and independently released two highly acclaimed albums, Quiet Giant & Sowing Acorns, laying the groundwork for a bright, busy future. In 2019 Emma Langford made her US debut at the world’s largest celebration of Irish music, Milwaukee Irish Fest. She traverses the Atlantic once again this August, accompanied by Dr. Alec Brown, a multi-instrumentalist who has formed an integral part of the Emma Langford ensemble from day 1, both in studio and on stage. While Alec hails from Arkansas, he has lived and worked in Ireland for over a decade, contributing generously to the country’s vibrant musical tapestry. A flautist and cellist with an Arts Practice Ph.D., he has developed a unique sound, which he uses to create folk, traditional and bluegrass music as well as ambient soundscapes to accompany live and recorded performances. In 2022 she is back on the road sharing work from her eclectic catalogue, and continuing her Arts Council supported research around Irish women in myth and history.
