EmiSun­shine to play Cavendish fes­ti­val

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT/COMMUNITY -

Miss EmiSun­shine, the 13-year-old East Ten­nessee prodigy who has cap­tured at­ten­tion as a phe­nom­e­non with her in­de­scrib­able, ex­cep­tional and in­ex­pli­ca­ble ta­lents, is head­ing to P.E.I.

The nat­u­ral-born singer/ song­writer and multi-in­stru­men­tal­ist is steeped in Ap­palachian mu­sic. In­flu­enced by her leg­endary heroes (Loretta Lynn/Tanya Tucker/The Lou­vin Broth­ers), Emi has taken the world by sur­prise with her abil­ity to com­bine her youth­ful, bub­bly dis­po­si­tion with deep, mean­ing­ful and rather dark song con­tent.

The young mu­si­cian has per­formed on The To­day Show, The Grand Ole Opry and at The Ry­man. While her mu­sic as been de­scribed as “old-timey,” she adds her own unique blend of roots mu­sic that is equal parts Amer­i­cana, blue­grass, gospel and coun­try with a sprin­kle of blues.

EmiSun­shine is sched­uled to per­form dur­ing the Cavendish Beach Mu­sic Fes­ti­val on July 8.
