Carter Fold to Present Appalachian music by Emi Sunshine Nov 28

Emi SunshineHiltons, VA -- Saturday, November 28, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert of Appalachian music by Emi Sunshine. It’s impossible to explain the exceptional talents of Emi Sunshine, a 10-year old east Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation’s attention as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Steeped in Appalachian music, she is a true vocal stylist, one who instinctively knows how to interpret the nuances of a song with her impressive range, even though she has yet to gain the life experience and empathy seemingly necessary to fully comprehend the words she sings. Despite a given name that reflects optimism, she is drawn to dark themes in music – like that of the Louvin Brothers. The Tennessean is just the latest to describe her as an old soul – noting Onstage, this soul’s presence is commanding and her singing voice authentic and folksy. While her youth might remind many of Taylor Swift, a more apt comparison would be to artists such as Dolly Parton, Alison Krauss, or members of the Carter Family.
