About Emily Ashberry

Singer, guitarist and actor based in Northamptonshire specialising in acoustic covers and folk music, and musical theatre.
Singer (soprano)
Northampton
Public liability insurance of £2 million

Hello, My name is Emily Ashberry. I am a soprano singer working towards a Grade 8 qualification in singing for musical theatre from the prestigious LAMDA school . I have been playing the guitar since the age of 12 and, during my training at the University of Northampton, I have used my skills as a musician both onstage as an actor and as a live performer in local pubs. A large part of my repertoire is folk music; I arrange and rewrite traditional folk songs, making them my own. I also have a wide range of acoustic covers, including many different genres, ranging from Ella Fitzgerald to David Bowie. I am happy to learn song requests and tailor the event to you and your tastes!

Customer questions

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

I really love folk and country music, so my big influences are artists like Kate Rusby, Dolly Parton, and The Indigo Girls, especially in my original songs. However, I have a wide range of acoustic covers from all sorts of genres and artists!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

No problem! Just let me know in advance. If the time I'm booked for increases by a lot then there may be an additional charge but this can be discussed together

How much time do you need to set up?

This depends on the event style or feel; if I'm playing acoustically, then 5-10 minutes to get a feel for how I sound in the space and set up an area for myself. If playing amplified about 20-30 minutes to do a sound check and make sure everything sounds good.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Definitely! The event can be tailored to you and your tastes, and you can choose any from my set list that you think are suitable. I'll advise on the order, but the song choices can be entirely up to you.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I can bring just my instrument to play acoustically, or I can provide a mic, stand and amp.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Absolutely! Happy to learn any requests in advance.

Kevin R, 1 year ago

Emily Ashberry as Baltazar, transformed into Adam Ant and with guitar, bringing some superb reworked versions of many eighties tracks (how brilliant was Let's Dance!). Her little interludes were one of the best parts of the show, brilliantly performed and cleverly conceived. Fab stuff!
