Emily Ann Thompson performs traditional Celtic fiddle tunes, sings in English and Irish Gaelic, and clogs while fiddling. From fast, high-energy jigs and reels to captivating airs and songs, her performance is energetic and passionate. Emily Ann’s husband Kelly joins her on guitar, percussion, and vocals.
