'Hourglass' Promo Video
Delving into her folk roots, ‘Hourglass’, has been an exciting journey for Emer and brings an array of timeless and deeply rooted folk songs to the listener.
When you bring musicians into studio of the calibre of Gavin Murphy (Celtic Woman, Niall Horan), Jason Duffy (The Corrs, Eddi Reader) and James Blennerhassett (Van Morrison, Nathan Carter) among other superbly talented musicians and combine them with a natural vocal talent and a highly skilled producer, then the result is a smooth blend of creativity and simply put, musical magic.
Emer Dunne is an excellent Irish singer with an extremely rich voice that never fails to move the listener. She comes from the deep tradition of Irish Folk Singing and has embraced Scottish and American Folk songs as well on this lovely new record Hourglass. It is produced to the highest international standard and I believe it will be very well received both at home and around the world.
