Emy Phelps

Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist

 Singer/songwriter/guitarist Emy Phelps does not remember a time when she has not sung. As a member of Brian Ransom’s Ceramic Ensemble from 1980–1987, she toured internationally while conducting research on indigenous music in Peru. Originally from Ashland, Oregon, Emy has performed all around the Pacific Northwest since the late 80’s. Presently, Emy continues her work as a recording artist, core songwriter of “The Furies,” and performs in a duo with fiddler Darol Anger. Her newest recording, “Look Up, Look Down,” features her original songs with a stellar band including Darol Anger and members of the “The Furies.” Past venues include the Northwest String Summit, Wintergrass, Delfest, the Peter Britt Festival, New Music America Festival Philadelphia, North By Northwest, Moab Folk Festival, Oregon Country Fair, John Hartford Memorial Festival, and Northwest Folk Life Festival in Seattle. She has been compared to Lyle Lovett, Gillian Welch, and Emmylou Harris for her American Roots eclectic style of song writing and vocal performance.
