With her angelic voice and lyrics laid bare, Emily Scott Robinson makes a Whistle Stop in the intimate listening room of The Depot, 200 S. Jones, on Sunday, March 18, 2018. Tickets are $15 for the 7:00 pm concert. Norman singer/songwriter Katie Williams will open the evening.
Pioneering her own brand of roots music, “Southern Gothic folk,” North Carolina native Emily Scott Robinson engaging audiences with stories and songs that are equal parts playful, darkly funny, heart-wrenching and redemptive. She writes with raw lyrical power and authenticity, enchanting audiences with an intimate performance every time.
Emily released her debut album, Magnolia Queen, in February 2016 and the EP Live in Birmingham in 2017. She was featured on PRI's "The World" for her single, "Traveling Mercies” in 2017 and was also named a winner of the 2017 Wildflower Festival Performing Songwriter Contest. In 2016, Emily won the Grassy Hill New Folk competition at Kerrville Folk Festival, in addition to an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Telluride Troubadour Contest. Watch for her first full-length studio album, Traveling Mercies, set to release in September 2018.
Emily tours full time with her husband in their motorhome. She returns to The Depot after her very well received February 2017 concert.
Katie Williams has always found solace and expression through writing, but only fully realized her passion when she put her words to music. Katie writes all of her own songs, plays guitar, and is constantly improving her craft to give back what music has given to her- "consolation."
