New York natives, Emish, have forged their own Americana folk rock sound by colliding a background of Irish, rock, and folk influences. This independent, power-folk band initially found success in a grassroots manner. Supported by their local and dedicated fan base, Emish has repeatedly been voted the “Best Band of the Hudson Valley”, including the 2012 title. Since its inception in 2005, the group has grown to include support from the national stage as well. Their high energy, live performances and distinct sound have catapulted Emish to be a sought-out headlining act at major festivals and concerts across the US, including the likes of Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Folk & Irish festivals, as well as, the more intimate setting of theaters or small concert settings.
In Emish’s fourth album, the group ventured further into the Americana movement focusing on their original songs written by award winning front man, Bobby Curreri, while highlighting the bands multi-instrumentalists Christy Brown and Jen Curreri on fiddle, flute, cello, accordion, trumpet and whistle and rounding out the sounds with powerful rhythm of bass and Andrew Hulle on percussion. With the anticipated release of this album, which was completely funded by their fan base, it will be more evident than ever why one of the largest US festivals, Irish 2000 has quoted Emish as a “Force to be reckoned with”, while the NY based IPH radio station awarded the first annual “Mighty Craic Award” to Emish. Bobby Curreri has also been named as the “Best Singer/Songwriter” of both 2011 and 2012 while the full band took home “Best Band” for the fourth year.
The doors at BluSeed Studios open at 7:30pm, reservations are recommended.
