As a graduate of the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and New School University in New York City, I've performed all over the country in national tours and regional theatres ranging from AZ to TX. Workshops, festivals, and readings in NYC have given me different tools that are useful in today's quickly changing artistic world. My violin and I have also traveled the world with performances in France as well as touring the United States.

It is no wonder that someone from the very edge of the North American continent would possess a voice as naturally captivating as the verdant Pacific Northwest. Emma Beaton, young cellist, singer, banjo-player, and fiddler from Qualicum Beach, British Columbia has what bluegrass super-star Laurie Lewis called, a "voice like a laser," clear, effortless, and striking to the core.
The child of two Scottish emigrants, Beaton is no stranger to the traditional music realm. She learned to play the cello amongst seas of fiddlers under Alasdair Fraser's San Francisco Scottish fiddlers and at music camps around the US. This forced her to develop her own style of folk cello, adapting dance tunes for the instrument and conjuring up her own rhythmic accompaniment style to suit the fiddle repertoire.
She has studied with other notable innovative cellists, under Natalie Haas at the Berklee College of Music as well as with Tristan Clarridge and Rushad Eggleston, both of Crooked Still. She has appeared on Scottish national television, performed at festivals worldwide, such as the Aberdeen Youth Arts Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Colorado Folks Fest, Celtic Connections, Winnipeg Folk Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival, Calgary Folk Festival, Summerfolk, Rockygrass, Wintergrass, and more, and shared the stage with luminaries such as Alasdair Fraser, Bruce Molsky, Back of the Moon, Hanneke Cassel, Peter Rowan, Tim O'Brien, the Steep Canyon Rangers, and more. She attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and has taught extensively, both privately and at music camps such as The American Festival of Fiddle Tunes, VoiceWorks, FiddleWorks, and the Sunshine Coast School of Celtic Music.
At the age of eighteen, Beaton won the Canadian Folk Music Award's Young Performer of the Year after the release of her debut recording, "Pretty Fair Maid." She was also nominated just a couple years later for "Traditional Vocalist of the Year" by the same Canadian Folk Music Awards.
She presently tours with Joy Kills Sorrow, the Southgate Band, and Nic Gareiss, and makes her home in Brooklyn, NY, where she teaches locally.
