Emma Langford is a Limerick Lass.Since first bursting onto the scene in 2016 she’s hardly taken her foot off the pedal, with an eye-watering ever-growing tour schedule and frequent collaborations up her sleeve. The artist has received consistent praise from national and international media and audiences alike, with The Irish Times describing her debut album Quiet Giant (2017) as ‘music that weaves a spell as you listen to it… An enduring piece of work’. Ireland’s state broadcaster RTÉ Radio 1 presented Emma with the Best Emerging Artist award at their inaugural Folk Awards in October 2018.
In 2018 the self-made Limerick songwriter completed a whirlwind 100-date promotional tour across Austria, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and Ireland. Langford has hit her stride and shows no signs of slowing down. Following the release of her single Goodbye Hawaii praised in Hot Press as the “downright sunniest song of the summer”, Emma is due to release more new music later in the year, as well as a much anticipated second album in early 2020; she is also collaborating locally on projects with musicians, theatre-makers and aerial-dance performers.
Emma made her debut appearance in the USA this past August 2019 on the Snug Stage at Milwaukee Irish Fest.
