Event Details

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 America, Japan and Russia they are one of the most vibrant duos on the UK folk scene today.


Over the years Smith and McClennan have worked with many musical greats including Barbara Dickson, Richard Thompson, Jerry Douglas, Eddi Reader and Beth Nielsen Chapman.  TV appearances include BBC Four’s Transatlantic Sessions, BBC One’s Songs of Praise and BBC Scotland’s Hogmanay Live.
