Emily Smith and Jamie McClennan

Scottish folksinger Emily Smith and New Zealand born Jamie McClennan celebrate 15 years of making music together in 2017

Their anniversary tour showcases a big new sound for the duo, with newly written songs from Smith and McClennan paired with some of their favourites from the past 15 years.  

Drawing on influences from the folk tradition, Americana and beyond, the couple’s sumptuous harmonies are layered over sizzling double guitars, fiddle and accordion giving the audience the impression of a much larger band. 

Having toured the world throughout Europe, Australasia, North American, Japan and Russia they are without a doubt one of the most vibrant duos on the UK folk scene today.
