Emer is an acclaimed Irish folk singer, enchanting audiences with her vocal purity and rich storytelling ability and releasing two No 1 hit singles from her debut folk album, ‘Hourglass’ with established producer Bill Shanley (Mary Black, Paul Brady, Gilbert O Sullivan), ‘Hourglass’ brought favourable reviews from Hot Press, RTE Behind the Music and Irish music Magazine, traction on national and international radio and feature on Ireland’s RTE Television.
Word spread quickly as audiences flocked to witness Emer and her band on her successful headline theatre tours, performing as a trio in various corners of Ireland. Emer is joined by the accomplished guitarist, Eamonn Moran and virtuoso fiddler, Aidan Connolly from Dublin. With their heartfelt performances and their entertaining nature on stage, this dynamic trio have made shows a great success and allow for wonderful audience participation. Sure who doesn’t like to sing along! Fresh from touring in 2023 with renowned folk legends, The Fureys, Emer was invited back again in 2024 where she is gracing the stages of Ireland’s most iconic venues including Dublin’s Vicar Street, Cork’s Opera House and many more.
Offstage Emer finds joy in connecting with people and draws inspiration from long walks in Ireland’s rugged landscapes, seeking new melodies and tales in the countryside where she is now based. Emer can work with Irish, acoustic, classical and even modern styles. She caught the attention of Leonard Cohen’s management team as they reached out and cited her rendition of his famous song, ‘Hallelujah’ as one of their favourite versions of the song. Emer continues to weave her magic on and off the stage and she is leaving an indelible mark on the rich tapestry of Irish folk music and song.
