This year Emily Smith and Jamie McClennan celebrate 15 years of making music together. Their anniversary tour showcases a big new sound for the duo, with Emily’s beautiful voice and the couple’s sumptuous harmonies layered over sizzling double guitars, fiddle and accordion. The set features newly written songs paired with selected favourites.
Since 2002, when he moved from New Zealand to Scotland, fiddle player Jamie McClennan has become an integral part of Emily’s sound, taking on the role of lead guitar and backing vocals and producing several of her albums. The duo has played its particular brand of folk/roots music throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Russia and North America.
