About Emma

Freelance violinist based in the Highlands of Scotland.

From the Highlands of Scotland, Emma has been playing the violin since the age of 8. Growing up, she enjoyed learning both classical and traditional Scottish music, and has strived to keep both passions running simultaneously. During her time in Edinburgh she had the pleasure of leading three university orchestras; Edinburgh University String Orchestra, Edinburgh University Chamber Orchestra and Edinburgh University Symphony Orchestra. This has given her the opportunity to work with inspiring conductors including Will Conway, Chris George and Russell Cowieson. She has also lead orchestras for Edinburgh University Footlights and Edinburgh Studio Opera. She has performed in many venues across Scotland including a duet with Nicola Benedetti in Eden Court, Inverness, solo lunchtime recitals in St Giles Cathedral and the Usher Hall, and group performances at Celtic Connections, Greyfriar’s Kirk and McEwan Hall. Emma currently lives in Inverness and plays with various ensembles throughout Scotland including Amicus Orchestra (Glasgow) and the Mahler Players (Inverness). Emma is also a keen composer and has had works performed by Edinburgh University Chamber Orchestra and Edinburgh University Composer’s Orchestra. She has always had a passion for film music and worked on student productions during her time at university.

Thank you Annasach for such a wonderful Ceilidh! You were able to get everyone on their feet, which made for a fantastic couple of hours of dancing! We are very much looking forward to taking part in another of your Ceilidhs on a future trip to Scotland. Mr and Mrs Edwards :)

We are so glad we booked with Annasach Ceilidh Band! They made our evening. The music, dance calling and audience interaction was fantastic. Highly recommend and would gladly book again.
