The Limerick woman almost lost her voice to nodules as a child; a voice now hailed as an inimitable, national treasure. She creates work that fuses trad, folk, and jazz; her writing and performance are a celebration of this nation's tradition of storytelling. Sweet and sardonic in equal measures, Emma Langford is a songwriters' songwriter. Langford was awarded the RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award for Best Emerging Artist in 2018, and in 2020 was shortlisted in the category of Best Folk Singer. 2021 sees her gain more speed and momentum than ever. In just four years she wrote and independently released two highly acclaimed full-band records, 'Quiet Giant' (2017) and 'Sowing Acorns' (2020), laying the groundwork for a bright and busy future. While touring ground to a halt due to the pandemic, in the year that was, the artist charted more than once on iTunes and on Irish radio with her track Birdsong; collaborated with the Mount Sion Choir and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra; joined the hugely successful Irish Women In Harmony lineup; and lent her voice to the lead role of Aedan Cara, the "last princess of Ireland" on musical-theatre concept album, 'Colours', which was released in April.
