In celebration of new starts and new songs, Emma Langford and Hatchlings have joined folky forces for a limited run of Irish shows.
Levis’ Corner House, is delighted to host a never-before-heard collaborative re-workings of both artists’ material, as well as two brand new songs, Emma’s homage to her late uncle and the West coast in “The Winding Way Down to Kell’s Bay”, and Hatchlings’ heart-rending “Spar Boy”.
Hatchlings is a collaborative project of 5 songwriters and multi-instrumentalists from both sides of the border of Ireland.
Pop-conscious, steeped in jazz, with roots firmly planted in folk tradtions, Hatchlings offer a varied sonic palette without losing sight of the deeply Irish narratives they portray.
On their latest release ‘Gay Hymns’, REMY writes:
“There is pretty much no room for improvement here on the EP, and it must be marked out as one of the best collection of song-writing to emerge so far this year.”
Since breaking on to the scene 3 years ago with a 6-track crowd-funded EP, Emma Langford has wasted no time in weaving herself into the DNA of the Irish folk scene on an international scale.
She has created a sound that intricately blends folk, jazz, and Irish traditional nuance. Her silken voice dances a line between sweetly seductive and defiant, and has captured the hearts of Irish and international audiences alike.
Emma launched her first album, Quiet Giant, in 2017, before going on to win an RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award in 2018. The Irish Times described the Limerick woman’s debut as an album that ‘weaves a spell as you listen to it… An enduring piece of work’, and the artist herself as a “treasure of Ireland’s music scene”.
