Returning to FanJoy on Saturday, 15 December.
Emily Gilbart has been playing guitar since before she was ten years old. It wasn’t long until she was writing her own songs. One of the styles she likes to use is story telling, as she has been influenced by listening to artists such as Bob Dylan.
She has been performing and receiving praise for her original songwriting along with accolades at various music events in Ontario, e.g. Owen Sound Summerfolk and Orangeville Jazz & Blues Festival.
Her voice is from beyond her years in this authour’s opinion. She can do credit to old blues standards, torch songs and folk standards in equal measure. Her recently released EP “Long Gone” features 5 tracks.
