Emily Elbert Performs in Edom
Award-winning songstress Emily Elbert is returning to Edom to perform at The Old Firehouse on Friday, March 24. The Texas native and Berklee College of Music graduate is known for her rhythmic guitar chops, funky original tunes, and unique interpretations of well-loved rock, jazz, pop, and folk songs.

Steeped in jazz, James Taylor, and Jimi Hendrix, Emily has played more than 1000 shows throughout the U.S. and around the world – from Thailand to Turkey and from Spain to Singapore.

Emily spent a year touring with Grammy Award-winning Esperanza Spalding and has opened for Leon Russell, G Love, Emily King, and Tuck and Patti.
The Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival in Montana says about Emily, “Pouring her heart and soul into her songs, we’re not sure which is more impressive, her humble spirit or her unbelievable talent.”
