Emerald Rae: CD Release, with Luke Concannon
Fiddler & Folk Singer Emerald Rae has played the series before, riveting audiences with her range.

Hailing from the historic fishing town of Gloucester, Massachusetts, Emerald Rae is both a small-town girl steeped in cherished traditions and a world-class artist breaking new ground with her sophisticated approach to rhythmic and percussive fiddling. Her direct and intimate style of singing infuses her songs with a powerful immediacy while her extraordinary chops transform the fiddle into anything from bagpipes to flamenco or electric guitar, slap bass or ukulele. Her voice, alternately high and honeyed then gutsy and soulful, delivers a vocal range that encompasses both wind and sea, animal and etheric.



Opening for Emerald Rae (and likely collaborating with her for a song or two) will be Luke Concannon. Luke is an English singer-who writes deeply crafted, soulful poetic songs. Currently best known for being a central influence on the now mega star Ed Sheeran, who was a fan of Lukes duo Nizlopi, an underground, independant act that topped the charts in the UK and Ireland with The JCB Song in 2005. Luke writes about people power, poverty, intimacy, and his grandmas. He moved to America for love in 2016, and is thrilled to be sharing songs from his new album. He loves to include and engage folk, so hell be teaching the audience lyrics to the songs and inviting them to sing share and dance.
