2013 marked Emily Smith's tenth anniversary as a folksinger. To celebrate this milestone she compiled an album titled 'Ten Years' featuring tracks from previous albums, new recordings of old favourites and five previously unreleased tracks. Now available for the first time in stores, 'Ten Years' follows hot on the heels of Emily's highly acclaimed brand new album, 'Echoes.' Time has passed ridiculously fast since Emily was named BBC Radio Scotland's Young Traditional Musician of the Year back in 2002. The accolades continued as she won the USA Songwriting Competition in 2005, Scots Singer of the Year at the Scots Trad Music Awards in 2008, and she received two nominations in the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. In that time she's toured the world, thrilling audiences from Cambridge Folk Festival all the way down to the National Folk Festival in Australia, via Europe, Russia, Canada and New Zealand. Her face has been all over the telly thanks to BBC Four's Transatlantic Sessions, BBC One's Songs of Praise, Scotland's Hogmanay Live, BBC Ulster's Santer and an exclusive performance for Sky Arts Channel. In 2013 Emily toured as part of the Transatlantic Sessions extended family, singing with the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Eric Bibb and Teddy Thompson - adding to an impressive list of onstage collaborators which also includes Richard Thompson, Eddi Reader and Beth Nielson Chapman. Her albums 'A Day Like Today', 'A Different Life', 'Too Long Away', 'Traveller's Joy' and 2009's sparkling take on lesser known Robert Burns compositions 'Adoon Winding Nith' (released as a duo with husband Jamie McClennan), established Emily as both an adroit interpreter of old songs and a dazzlingly accomplished crafter of original material. In 2013 Emily released her best-of collection Ten Years (coming up with titles is harder than it looks) marking a journey that's already seen her described by The Guardian as Scotland's "most impressive young songwriter". Blimey!
