Brian O'Donovan Presents: Emma Langford

Brian O'Donovan Presents: Emma Langford
Storytelling sits at the heart of everything Emma Langford does; interweaving her live performances, and shining through her recorded works. Hers is an inimitable, dreamy voice in the new wave of Irish folk.

Langford was awarded the RTÉ Folk Award for Best Emerging Artist in 2018, and in 2020 and 2021 was shortlisted for Best Folk Singer. She received the Music Network RESONATE residency, and Arts Council Agility Award in ’21 to support her continuing musical exploration of women in Irish history.

Emma has written and independently released two highly acclaimed albums, Quiet Giant (2017) & Sowing Acorns (2020), laying the groundwork for a bright, busy future. As part of an international tour, 2019 saw Langford make her US debut at the world’s largest celebration of Irish music, Milwaukee Irish Fest.

Never one to shy from a challenge, she made the ultimately rewarding choice to release her latest album at the height of a pandemic – Sowing Acorns landed in September 2020, receiving huge international praise.

The artist then quietly climbed up the charts across iTunes and Irish radio with her epic folk ballad Birdsong; collaborated with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra; was selected to perform at the prestigious Ireland Music Week international showcase; and joined the hugely successful Irish Women In Harmony. She was also featured in the leading role of Aedan Cara on musical theatre concept album, ‘Colours’ released online in April 2021. 

2022 sees her back on the road, as well as collaborating with award-winning Irish conductor and composer Eimear Noone on work surrounding the legendary Gráinne Mhaol, Pirate Queen; and continuing her Arts Council supported research around Irish women in myth and history.

“I absolutely love her music, and the way she thinks… She’s someone I hope to work with myself one day… I wish I’d discovered Emma Langford sooner; now I have all this catching up to do!”
– Janis Ian
