Chapel Sessions Music welcomes Emma Stevens Wednesday 15th May 2019


British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Emma Stevens first picked up a guitar at the age of two and has since learnt cello, piano, banjo, ukulele and mandolin. Playing the majority of the instruments on her albums herself, Emma has achieved four consecutive play-listed singles on BBC Radio 2, extensive international radio play in the UK, Europe and Australia, an iTunes single of the week with her song “Riptide”, sold out headline shows and supported The Feeling, Take That, Wet Wet Wet, Train, Albert Lee and Simply Red to name a few! Emma music has also been used on a TV show in China which was broadcast to 75 million people!

Emma’s brand new EP “Atoms” is a beautiful collection of songs, featuring collaborations with Kevin Jeremiah from “The Feeling”, and Grammy Award Winning writer Charlie Midnight. 

Since losing her Mum to cancer in 2012, Emma has dedicated her life to her music, writing messages of positivity, hope and love. Selected by the BBC to be a judge for the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016, Emma is no stranger on knowing how to deliver a good performance. Expect to be taken on an exciting musical journey, from foot tappers, to barn stompers, to compassionate and delicate tear jerkers. There’s something for everyone with this special and unique artist.

Not to be missed!

Chapel Sessions Music presents VISHTEN 10th February at Royal Victoria Chapel Netley Southampton

A powerhouse multi-instrumental trio, Vishtèn are flagbearers for their unique Acadian musical tradition throughout the world.

Watch and listen to Vishten click here  https://youtu.be/kOB456ohaBc

Twin sisters Emmanuelle and Pastelle LeBlanc, from Prince Edward Island, join forces with Pascal Miousse â€“ a direct descendant of the first colonial families to inhabit Quebec’s remote Magdalene Islands – in a live show that combines song-writing elegance with the dynamism of three experienced and truly passionate performers. Tight sibling harmonies, layered foot percussion and a compelling trademark blend of fiddle, guitar, accordion, whistles, piano, bodhrán and jaw harp create an expansive sound that triumphantly defies the parameters of a trio.

Whilst all three are form a rich musical upbringing and heritage, their take on their musical traditions looks forward as much as it looks back. The Cajun tradition – spread by Acadians throughout America â€“ mixes with Celtic and world strands, altogether redefining the possibilities of French-Canadian folk.

“a jaw-dropping set from an outstanding band” Folk Radio 

“traditional, but fiercely up-to-the-moment” Penguin Eggs 

“Instrumentally this is a class act. Vishtèn have all the bounce and bravado of Quebec music, plus the soulful melodies of the Acadian tradition.”

The Living Tradition

“Rhythms, melodies, voices, musicianship… a near perfect ensemble. Vishtèn, what a world!”
Le Petit Douchynois, France

Doors open 7.30pm artists on stage 8pm refreshments area available at the venuel 7pm and at interval.

Sarah McQuaid plays Chapel Sessions 14th November

We are delighted to be able to bring singer/songwriter Sarah to Chapel Sessions.  Check out her instrumental prowess and her beautiful voice by listening to some of the many varied tracks featured on her web site then buy tickets to see her live (book early for this one to avoid dissapointment).

Recently honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Ards International Guitar Festival in Northern Ireland, Sarah’s also drawn critical praise for her voice (which has been variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate) and her engaging rapport with audiences:  “I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever,” wrote The Huffington Post.

With the release of her new album, the Madrid-born, Chicago-raised, Cornwall-based singer/songwriter has expanded her battery of instruments to include piano, electric guitar and drum, and it’s drawn critical raves internationally: Dutch music magazine Heaven hailed it as “an early contender for folk album of 2018,” the UK’s fRoots said it was “a collection to savour” and the USA’s PopMatters called it “a gateway into a true innovator’s soul.”

The support for Sarah’s Session is cellist Joe Pritchard, Royal Academy of Music, who plays on her latest album ‘If you dig any Deeper it could get dangerous’
