East Tennessee native EmiSunshine gained national attention at the age of nine when a video of her singing Jimmie Rodgers “Blue Yodel No. 6” at a local flea market went viral. That exposure led to an appearance on the Today Show, followed by touring engagements from coast to coast, as well as half-a-million followers on Facebook. Emi and her family band have performed on the Grand Ole Opry multiple times and have opened concerts for Loretta Lynn, Willie Nelson and Jason Isbell, just to name a few. She’s also a veteran of national music festivals like Austin City Limits, MerleFest, Stagecoach and Marty Stuarts’ Late Night Jam. A fourth generation musician, Emi first sang in public at a friend’s wedding at the age of four, and now at age 12, she just released her fourth album, “American Dream,” continues to tour the country, and you may have seen her in a national TV commercial for Facebook Live which debuted during the CMA’s earlier this week.
Lachlan’s Light the Night is a free admission event and is funded by a grant received by the foundation from the City of Seneca earlier this year. The event was designed as a thank you to the upstate South Carolina community for their continued support of our mission and also to raise awareness for Be the Match, the National Marrow Donor Registry.
EmiSunshine and her band, The Rain, will take the stage around 4:45 p.m. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and prepare to be blown away by this explosive talent.
A full schedule of events will be posted this week.
