Emily Burgess is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter based in Peterborough, Ontario. As a freelance guitarist, Emily has worked for a wide variety of artists and groups, including The Weber Brothers, The Women’s Blues Revue Band, The 24th Street Wailers, Rita Chiarelli, and Sue Foley. Fronting her own trio (with Marcus Browne on drums and Dawson McManus on bass), she won the Best New Artist Maple Blues Award in 2018. As a member of The 24th Street Wailers, she and her band mates were nominated for a JUNO award for their 2014 album ‘Wicked’.

As an independent artist, Emily has recorded 3 studio albums: Are We in Love? (2017), Never-Ending Fling (2019), and Arrow (2023). Of Arrow, CBC music journalist Bob Mersereau writes “It’s a well-rounded, skillful showcase, with Burgess stepping up as a songwriter, singer, and player. The songs switch from acoustic to electric to eclectic, confident, and really well-crafted.”

On May 25th at the Old Church Theatre, Emily will be joined by the dynamic rhythm and voice section of Marcus Browne on Drums and Rico Browne on Bass.
