Emily Hyman in Newport Concert
The Now Playing Newport Music Series is pleased to present local Singer/Songwriter Emily Nyman in Concert on Sunday, March 22, at 4 pm. The program takes place at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 44 Second Street, Newport.
Emily developed her musical talents performing in her hometown of Wareham, Massachusetts. Her musical foundation includes classical piano and folk guitar. During the 1980’s, Emily performed in Cape Cod and Amherst. She attended UMASS Amherst and Bridgewater State College, obtaining a Master’s degree in Psychology and then moving to Vermont in 1990. While interning as a Guidance Counselor, Emily met Lynn Berry, Guidance Counselor, Artist, and published poet. When Lynn shared her poems and Emily shared her music, a song writing team was born. Since then, they have written many songs and released several CDs.
Emily has “a pure and beautiful voice, effortlessly right on every note, combined with an immediately engaging personal presence... Her repertoire of (cover and original) songs has fine melodies and meaningful, poetic lyrics.” -
Emily’s music “resonates with poignant remembrances of childhood, peaceful moments, painful realizations, personal sacrifice, and unconditional love. Words to warm the heart; Music to caress the soul.» Tommy Raniszewski, Jersey magazine. Emily performs an eclectic mix of originals and cover tunes, including singer-songwriter, folk, and classic rock, with a sprinkling of blues, country and old standards, appealing to audiences of all ages and musical tastes. Whether performing originals or covers, Emily connects with her audience in an intimate way, inviting listeners to experience the emotions behind her originals or reminisce to familiar cover tunes. On many occasions, Lynn joins her, adding guitar and the lyricist perspective.
