For four years, our Emerging Artist Scheme has helped develop the career of numerous up and coming musicians. A year later than hoped due to the obvious, we’re very excited to showcase three artists from our current programme!

With a sound and spirit deeply engrained in the roots of their native Ireland, indie-folk duo Laytha take inspiration in both the ancient and contemporary for their beautifully crafted mix of traditional and folk sounds. Hailing from the West of the Island, cousins Niamh and Philana shared love of music naturally translated into songwriting. Gracefully delicate, sneakily addictive and utterly captivating, Laytha are an instantly recognisable sound of a modern Ireland.

Jack Warnock is a multi-instrumentalist and singer from Maghera, Co. Derry with a unique sound deeply rooted in the tradition of Irish folk music. Guitarist, pianist, vocalist in the traditional groups Cóiriú and Meargánta, Jack has performed in the final of Siansa Gael Linn at the National Concert Hall, Dublin on multiple occasions, and at the Royal Albert Hall, London. In 2018, he was nominated for the prestigious BBC Young Folk Award. Jack is currently working on his highly anticipated debut solo album, due for release in 2021.

Emily McCormick is a soulful, R&B artist based in Derry. Following her selection on the Emerging Artist Scheme, Emily has recently performed in support of Rhys Lewis and for the IMBOLC festival. Emily’s most recent single ‘Not Love’, was released on April 3rd as a precursor to a forthcoming EP.
