"If Sinead O Connor, Enya, Loreena McKennett and Venessa Dou were melded into one incredibly talented artist – that artist would be Emer Kenny"
Album Network, USA
"Her sound alternates between the veiled, glacial mystery of the Cocteau Twins' Heaven or Las Vegas and the dense atmospherics of Daniel Lanois' Shine."
Internationally renowned and critically acclaimed harpist and singer Emer Kenny has sold over fifty thousand albums world-wide and her original music has been used in major US films and television series and remixed twice by dance music icon, Junior Vasquez.
Her original music is included on over 20 internationally released compilation albums and she is regularly commissioned to compose and record new tracks for the different media formats.
Emer, an extremely talented and experienced singer and Harpist performs regularly at Irish and International festivals and concerts, radio and television shows, wedding ceremonies and corporate events.
Along with maintaining her recording and performing career, Emer is a now a senior lecturer in Concert Harp in DKIT and also teaches Harp, singing and composition privately.
I've played at many weddings, church weddings, civil ceremonies, humanist ceremonies, druid ceremonies and renewal of vows and for every wedding I work with the Bride and Groom to get the music that is perfect for them. I have a few samples of wedding music from my extensive repertoire on my website.
I also play during drinks receptions, dinners and corporate events.
I regularly play in Slane Castle, Darver Castle and Glenloe Abbey and my recent live work includes the Boyle Arts Festival, Feile Belfast, Flatlake Arts and Literary Festival, CQAF Belfast, The Harp Festival Termonfeckin and the Amnesty International Concert in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.
Please don't hesitate to contact me with any enquiries you may have.
I look forward to meeting you.
