Join us as we welcome Emma Langford to the Irish Center, joined by fellow Limerick native Nick Carswell and Carswell and Hope!
Emma Langford is fast becoming a household name as a firm feature of the Irish folk and songwriter scene. A globetrotting troubadour, Langford calls Limerick City in the West of Ireland home. Storytelling and wit sit at the heart of all she does; interweaving her live performances, and shining through her works. Langford’s is an inimitable, dreamy voice on the frontline of a new wave of Irish folk.
Also a Limerick native, Nick Carswell now calls Lawrence, Kansas home and is the frontman of local band Carswell and Hope. From Lawrence, KS with a taste of Ireland, Carswell & Hope bring vintage rock sounds and sensibilities together with big harmonies, carefully crafted textures and inventive songwriting, to create a sound and experience all of their own.
Carswell & Hope were formed in 2012 when Irishman Nick Carswell arrived in Lawrence, Kansas with guitar in hand, ready to bring his unique voice and inventive songwriting to the US Midwest. He soon found Jason Slote (drums), Austin Quick (bass/keys) and Jordan Tucker (guitar), and the sound immediately began to form the cohesive yet difficult to define space that Carswell & Hope inhabits. The band has been compared to Elvis Costello, Radiohead, Fleet Foxes, Local Natives and ELO.
Doors open at 6:30, show starts at 7pm. Don't miss out!
This event is presented in partnership with The Bridge 90.9.
