Emer Dunne & Special Guests
We are thrilled to welcome the sublime voice of Emer Dunne, to the Corn Mill Theatre along with special guests Tom Morrow (Dervish), John McCartin and Brian Farrell. Emer has a purity and strength in her voice that has deemed her to be “a definite rising star” by Irish Music Magazine where she has been compared to the likes of Mary Black and Maura O'Connell amongst others. Despite the challenges of the past two years, 2021 saw Emer rise on the folk scene, featuring on the RTE ‘Today’ show and releasing two no 1 hit singles, ‘Daisy’ and ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’.
Emer Dunne 'Hourglass Tour'
On the release of her debut folk album, ‘Hourglass’ (produced by Bill Shanley) Hot Press described Emer to be “an entertainer through and through… There is a hearty appetite for what ‘Hourglass’ has to offer …with her trademark soaring voice”.
Having shared the stage with The Furey’s, Phil Coulter and John Spillane among others, Emer’s voice has now hit the national airwaves with RTE Radio 1’s Rising Time referring to her album as “fabulous from start to finish” and BBC Radio Ulster citing “A great voice and a lovely impressive production”.
Emer is now delighted to be taking to the stage and opening her tour in the Corn Mill theatre with a wonderful live folk performance this April 1st. Teaming up with the talented seven times All-Ireland Champion, Robert Harvey on flute and the unique rock and acoustic influences of guitarist Simon Graydon, Emer and her acoustic trio are set to bring you an entertaining mix, featuring timeless Irish, American and Scottish folk songs and music.
