Emma is a musical and lively lady who faces the world with her voice, Celtic harp, diatonic accordion, and expression. Her interests lie primarily in folk and early music. As a teenager, she played, sometimes as a guest musician, in various folk bands. Later, she studied classical singing at the Lemmensinstituut in Leuven. Currently, Emma plays and sings in her balfolk projects Emmarilin and Fyndus, sings in the music theater Mirage, and works as a freelance singer with the early music ensemble Currende. She also performs solo at various festivals, celebrations, and ceremonies.
Adelheid Glatt studied viola da gamba with Wieland Kuijken, with whom she later played numerous concerts and made recordings. She taught at the conservatory in The Hague and performed in many European countries, South Africa, and Japan. Later on, she, along with her husband Andreas Glatt, founded the record label ACCENT. After a detour (she worked as a professional ceramicist in the meantime), she found her way back to her instrument. In 2021, she founded the ensemble CONSORTO ETEREO.
