See Emily Play

Sorry Floyd fans but it was simply too good an opportunity to pass up.
We are off to the Mitchell Theatre tomorrow night  for our second and final Celtic Connections outing to see Dumfries and Galloway native Emily Smith and her New Zealand born fiddle playing husband Jamie McLennan.

Mrs CC and I have been fans ever since picking up a copy of 2001's Traiveller's Joy from the library and yes that is the correct spelling. It will be the first time we have had an opportunity to see her.
She is pretty much in the traditional Folk music camp.
From Traiveller's Joy here is a beautiful cover version of Richard Thompson's Waltzing for Dreamers followed by the more traditional Lord Donald.

  1. "She is pretty much in the traditional Folk music camp."
    She sits on on upturned bucket, singing with one hand over her ear?

    1. I'll find out tomorrow night!

    2. If she does, can you take a photo and post it on teh blog?
