Emily Higgins: Bio

Emily, a skilled performing singer-songwriter, has delivered her original music to audiences at house concerts, festivals, coffeehouses, restaurants, live radio interviews and performances, listening rooms and concert halls. She currently fronts the band Auntie Em and the Tornadoes and is a member of the trio Layton Hollow Gals and most recently, The HigLeeWils. Formerly, Emily performed with the acoustic trios The RedHouse WoodPickers and Three Left Feet.

Under Emily's belt are four all-original CD's, "Singing River," "The House at the End of the Road," and "On the Square." Emily's fourth collection of originals, "91 Acres," was commissioned by a Missouri landowner wishing to memorialize his journey in land reclamation, as well as the wildlife, geographical features, nature and hobbies that comprise his beautiful property.

Another hat worn by Emily is that of producer and host of the weekly radio show "The Mulberry Tree" airing on KSMU, Springfield, Missouri's NPR affiliate station at 9 p.m. CST. The Mulberry Tree features tracks from singer-songwriters, new and traditional folk, folk-pop and local-regional musicians.
