Act Profile


Emmet is from Ireland, living in London and has over 15 years of experience in performing live. Although his style is rooted in folk and blues, Emmet has the scope to perform songs from artists as diverse as Pavarotti if requested, and to great reaction.

Emmet plays with a host of musicians. He has a full band (Drums/Bass/Guitars/Vocals)that play folk, blues and pop songs that are loved by the masses. But he also plays with a harpist, pianist, mandolin player, fiddle player and many others to provide exactly what is needed for the event.

Act Information


Emmet plays guitar and sings, so at its most minimal, this would be the performance. But Emmets band has drums, electric guitars, backing vocals and bass - playing folk, americana, blues, soul and pop.

'One certainty from our wedding day, was that Emmet would be the one to sing a favourite of ours from his collection for our first dance. Truly unique and enjoyable, he gave us one of the more memorable moments from the day.'

'Thank you so much for making our wedding day unforgettable. The music was such an important part of our day and you excelled our expectations from start to finish. The dance floor was full all night and the guests still talk about how fantastic you were! We would recommend you to our nearest and dearest in a heartbeat.'

'Emmet Scanlan was a hugely important part of our day. The effort he went to to learn more about us before our wedding in terms of song preferences and suggestions was incredible. After the wedding the one recurring statement from people was how wonderful the music was during the ceremony- it's made an already emotional day so memorable. We could not recommend Emmet highly enough'
