Emily Smith ‘Traiveller’s Joy’ and gigs

Emily Smith is one of the leading singers in the Scottish & UK folk scene today. On 24th January 2011 Emily Smith’s will be releasing her new album, Traiveller’s Joy through White Fall Records. The album features songs Emily has written on the road throughout 2010 blending beautifully alongside traditional material sourced from the travelling people of Scotland. Covers include Richard Thompson’s Waltzing’s For Dreamers. Emily continues to draw inspiration from her home area of rural Dumfriesshire but this release sees her writing from a more personal viewpoint than before.

Guest musicians on the album feature an international line up including Nashville’s Stuart Duncan on fiddle, whom Emily met when performing on ‘Transatlantic Sessions’, Dublin’s Alan Doherty on flute and whistles, Australia’s James Fagan on bouzouki and Icelandic/Scot Signy Jakobsdottir on percussion with regular band mates Duncan Lyall on double bass and producer Jamie McClennan on guitar and fiddle.
