born singer Emily Smith first made her mark on the Scottish
music scene when she won the 2002 BBC Radio Scotland's Young
Scottish Traditional Musician of the Year Award. In the
same year she formed her own band and has since toured throughout
Europe and Australasia. In 2003 Emily graduated from the
Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama with an Honours
degree in Scottish music. During this time she developed
her skills on piano and accordion and established her own
singing style drawing on the many sources available to her.
Emily has a warm and open stage manner and these same characteristics
shine through in her musicianship. Her voice blends delicacy
with a surprising power and is equally alluring whether
enriched by instrumental backing or unaccompanied. With
an imaginative approach to instrumental arrangements she
gives a contemporary edge to ancient songs.
