Top Irish singer-songwriter forced to cancel Dundalk gig due to 'low ticket sales'

Emma Langford

Top Irish singer and songwriter Emma Langford has announced on Twitter that her upcoming gig in the Spirit Store in Dundalk on December 16th has been cancelled due to low ticket sales.

Emma explained the situation on Twitter:

"I would really truly appreciate any shares and word-spreading ye can do, just had to cancel our Dundalk gig on the 16th sadly due to low ticket sales.

"We just can't travel that far without a guaranteed audience, alas."

Emma followed up that Tweet by saying:

"I know I could've just said "due to unforeseen circumstances" but f**k it, I don't mind the painful truth if you don't!"

Emma was the winner of the prestigious RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards’ ‘Best Emerging Artist’ in 2017 and nominated for the Irish Post Music Awards’ ‘Best Folk Act’.

She has establishing herself on the Irish and international folk scene this year.

In October 2017 her debut album Quiet Giant was described by The Irish Times as “an enduring piece of work”.
