The Acoustic Yard Sessions to Feature Vickers Vimy and Emma Langford

Almost 5 years ago, ‘The Acoustic Yard’ opened its doors to original songwriters in Matt Molloy’s Yard Bar, Westport. Artists like Kelley McRae, Kevin Doherty, Brian Casey, Kathleen Turner and many many more, brought a fresh sound to County Mayo which in turn helped to encourage local talent in creating new exciting music.

The Acoustic Yard Music Festival and The Acoustic Yard Radio Show on followed, with acts all over the world now queuing up to play at one of their events.

‘The Acoustic Yard Sessions’ returns to Matt Molloy’s Yard Bar on Tuesday September 11th 2018 with Mayo-based band Vickers Vimy and Limerick’s Emma Langford. Two great original artists whose recent albums, respectively, ‘Atlas of Hearts’ and ‘Gentle Giant’ have taken national radio by storm.

Hailing from Mayo, on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland, Vickers Vimy craft songs that dwell on the borders of folk and Americana. Rich eclectic sounds anchor lyrical themes of scratched vinyl nights and hazy Sunday mornings. Their second album ‘Atlas of Hearts’ was released on 31st March 2018.

Emma Langford, a folk guitarist and singer-songwriter from Limerick in the West of Ireland, is imbued with the soul and style of Joni Mitchell, Eva Cassidy, and Joan Baez; her distinctive vocal style demonstrates a blend of Irish lilt with folk and jazz. Her debut album ‘Quiet Giant’ described by Today FM’s Ed Smith as “absolutely stunning” was released in October 2017. Emma was voted “Best Solo Female Artist” by Pure M Magazine in 2017 and was listed as a Hot Press Magazine one-to-watch in the summer of 2016.

Come and enjoy these two fabulous original artists for a night of great music.
