SCOTTISH folksinger Emily Smith and New Zealand born Jamie McClennan will be playing in Stirling towards the end of the month. 

The duo will bring their anniversary tour to the Tollbooth on Saturday, September 23, to celebrate 15 years of playing together. 

The gig will showcase a new sound for the pair, with newly written songs combined with some of their favourites from the past decade and a half. 

Drawing on influences from the folk tradition, Americana and beyond, the couple's harmonies are layered over double guitars, fiddle and accordion giving the audience the impression of a much larger band. 

Over the years Emily and Jamie have worked with a number of big names such as Barbara Dickson, Richard Thompson, Jerry Douglas, Eddi Reader and Beth Neilsen Chapman.
