Emily Hyman in New­port Con­cert

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

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.
