Emily Mae Winters Concert
Fast rising star on the UK Folk/Country scene, Emily Mae Winters is set to perform at The Courtyard this April.
Emily Mae Winters has a rare quality in a singer that makes critics reach for the superlatives. Described as having a voice that “stops you in your tracks” and “arresting, enthralling, tantalising” by Americana UK, Emily combines straight-to-the-heart bittersweetness with her own unique passion and drama in performance.
A trained musical theatre performer turned Shakespearean actress, eventually Winters left the characters behind in favour of her guitar to tell her own stories through song.
A self-confessed ‘poetry geek’, growing up a fan of 19th Century romantic poetry and literature, she released her much awaited second album ‘High Romance’ in July 2019 which sits between the stormy seas of folk and country. The record was produced by award winning London based Americana producer Matt Ingram at Urchin Studios (Florence and the Machine, Lucy Rose, Laura Marling, The Staves).
Emily Mae Winters has received support from the BBC Country Show with Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 2 Folk Show & BBC Radio 2 Good Morning Sunday. Her record reached No.3 in the iTunes Country Charts and was listed in Folk Radio UK’s Top Ten Albums of the Year leading to being awarded the PRSF Emerging Artist Award, two sell-out headline tours with her band and invitations to play a host of prestigious festivals.
Winters very recently supported award-winning Nashville artist Molly Tuttle on her UK tour and received the PRS International Showcase fund to showcase at Folk Alliance International, New Orleans.
Emily Mae Winters will be in The Courtyard’s Studio Theatre on Tuesday 4 April at 7.45pm. To book tickets, or for more information contact the Box Office on 01432 340555 or visit www.courtyard.org.uk.
