Lime Tree Theatre presents Emma Langford and Friends
Emma Langford will be playing via a live online stream from the Lime Tree Theatre as part of ‘Into the Stream, Online Session’.
The local Limerick artist, renowned for her beautiful take on Irish folk music will be performing to a virtual audience as part of the Lime Tree Theatre. ‘Into the Stream, Online Session’. The event will go live on Friday, April 9, 2021.
Through her music, Emma celebrates trad and folk genres in her composition, with performances delicately interwoven with jazz, pop and theatrical nuance. A singer with a profound respect for her instrument, Langford risked losing her voice to vocal nodules at a young age. Only in her early twenties, after rigorous vocal therapy and training, Emma was ready to share and hone her abilities. Her voice is now hailed as a crystalline treasure in the Irish music scene.
In 2017 Emma completed her MA in community music at the University of Limerick while meanwhile creating her debut album ‘Quiet Giant’, before embarking on a whirlwind world-tour that took her right up to 2019.
2020 saw less action on the travel front for Emma. That same year, Emma released her second album ‘Sowing Acorns’, meaning that in the short space of four years she has written and independently released two highly acclaimed full-band records. Not only this, but Emma is also set to take on the role of Aedan Cara the last Princess of Ireland, in the new musical ‘Colours’, which is directed by Charli Eglington.
Emma looks forward to returning to life on the road but in the meantime, welcomes the opportunity to share a stage with her friends and bandmates this Spring by delivering renditions of the songs from ‘Quiet Giant’ and ‘Sowing Acorns’ at the Lime Tree Theatre. With a full complement of musicians and vocalists, Langford takes to the Lime Tree Theatre stage to present a specially curated selection of her self-penned creations and renditions of popular favourites.
Gill Fenton, Marketing Manager at the Lime Tree Theatre commented, “We are so delighted to be in a position to present our third concert this year as part of our Into the Stream, Online Sessions series. There is a real appetite at the moment for our audiences to engage, knowing we can’t present them with a live programme our digital programme at least is the next best thing. We were completely overwhelmed with the response to Defying Gravity, A Musical Celebration of Women last month and it encouraged us to power on and keep going.”
Gill added, “For April we invited Emma Langford to perform on the Lime Tree Theatre stage for the very first time. It has been such a pleasure to watch Emma’s success grow nationally over the past number of years. We are excited to have her as part of this series with a full complement of musicians and vocalists in the Lime Tree to present a specially curated selection of her own songs and renditions of popular favourites. The stream will go live at 8 pm on Friday, April 9th.”
