Emer Dunne and Band

“Emer is an entertainer through and through… Hot Press Music Magazine

This October, we are thrilled to welcome the sublime voice of Emer Dunne to Birr Theatre. ‘Folk Threads’, is a unique, diverse, and versatile folk music show that brings together the ethereal voice of Emer Dunne and her superbly talented musicians. They are linking the threads of Irish, Scottish, and American folk song and music. Sit back and enjoy well-loved songs such as ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ and ‘Sweet Sixteen’, alongside some contemporary surprises!

Emer has a purity & strength in her voice that has deemed her to be “a definite rising star” by Irish Music Magazine. Emer came to prominence on the folk scene after featuring on the RTE ‘Today’ show, and following the release of two no 1 hit singles, and her no 1 debut folk album, ‘Hourglass’ (produced by Bill Shanley).
“A fabulous album from start to finish,” RTE Radio 1
“A great voice and a lovely impressive production,” BBC Radio Ulster
Emer has been touring various theatres around Ireland and is looking forward to bringing her Autumn tour ‘Folk Threads’ to Birr.

Don’t miss this great night of music and song!
