We are now sold out for Emily Smith's 'Songs For Christmas' show at Crafty Distillery, Newton Stewart, on Friday 22nd December. Thank you to everyone who has pre-booked. Please note that there will be no tickets available on the door if you haven't already pre-booked them.
Emily Smith presents her annual Christmas show â€˜Songs For Christmasâ€™. A beautiful blend of original and traditional songs drawn from her folk background combine to inspire and celebrate the festive season. From humble beginnings in a rural farm shop in 2012 Emily has honed a unique, family friendly Christmas night out. In 2016 she released the accompanying album from which her song â€˜Find Hopeâ€™ was play listed on BBC Radio 2. Her material has also been featured on BBC Songs of Praise Christmas special.
Sing along with traditional carols, tap your toes to upbeat instrumentals or simply close your eyes and let Emilyâ€™s evocative voice help you dwell on the joy and peace that Christmas can bring.
Emily will be joined by her band Jamie McClennan & Anna Massie (guitars, fiddles & vocals).
