Emily Smith presents her annual Christmas show Songs For Christmas. 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 Find Hope 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 Emily’s evocative voice help you dwell on the joy and peace that Christmas can bring.
Emily will be joined on the night by Jamie McClennan on fiddle and guitar and Blazin’ Fiddles’ Anna Massie on guitar.
