Emily is an incredible Aboriginal singer songwriter, from the Australian island of Groyte Eylandt. They are both living and creating in Australia full time so we are extremely lucky to have them join us on Clare Island. They will be joining us direct from Electric Picnic and heading on to Clonakilty Guitar Festival with a few stops in between!
