On this, her fifth studio album, Emily continues to draw on her talent as one of
the finest interpreters of traditional song in the UK. Unshakeably Scottish but
with farther, wider horizons, 'Echoes' is a bold new phase in Emily’s music.
New settings of time worn texts weave beautifully alongside contemporary
covers blurring the borders of old and new. With a line up of special guests
including Jerry Douglas, Kris Drever, Tim Edey and Aoife O'Donovan Echoes is
her finest album yet. Joining Emily on tour are regular band mates Jamie
McClennan (guitar, fiddle & vocals) and Matheu Watson (guitar, viola and
whistle). Signy Jakobsdottir (percussion) and Ross Hamilton (bass) will also be
performing with Emily at The Fullarton show.
