Celtic Singer Emma-Kate Tobia is a classically trained soprano who melds her pure lyrical voice with the timeless melodies of her Irish heritage. She is a multiple award winning artist who has a love for Irish Song which is reflected in her CD, ‘Aisling na nGael’ (An Irish Dream). The CD is a combination of Classical and Traditional songs mostly sung “as Gaeilge” ( in Irish )” The ultimate crossover !

Her second album An Irish Christmas Dream sees her collaborate with the wonderful Pat Crowley on piano ( better known for his work with Mary Black, Christy Moore and Joan Baez). The song ” Siúil Arúin” has a freshness and purity that reviewers and customers love – Celtic Music Fan USA –

“Miss Tobia’s voice maybe suited for powerful performances, yet in delivery, she is dubbed as Ireland’s angelic soprano”

-This Celtic Soprano has toured many cities in the USA and her connection with the New York St Patrick’s Day Parade has led to her video of the old Irish Song Óró ‘s é Do Bheatha ‘Bhaile opening the NBC coverage of the New York St Patrick’s Day Parade after she had been invited to ring the Opening Bell at the New York Stock Exchange. Celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the St Patrick’s Day Parade in New York she performed with her group (“An Irish Dream “) alongside The High Kings and Michael Flatley at their Gala Ball, New York was like a second home !

-US President Barak Obama gave her a kiss after she sang the US National Anthem for him at the College Green Rally, in Dublin and she was invited by the US Ambassador to Ireland , Dan Rooney, to join in the 4th July celebrations at his residence in the Phoenix Park, thus helping to promote her links with the USA.

Emma Kate has released a CD single of Fairytale of New York with George Murphy as one of her many musical collaborations and shows a versatility to her voice that crosses many musical genres.

“Emma Kate Tobia’s beautiful classically trained voice sets a total contrast to the grittiness of George Murphy.There is a touch of Margaret Dumont and Groucho Marx here. And rightly so.
