Old Father

Old Father Eternity is the experimental folk outlet of singer-songwriter/instrumentalist Emma Steen. The band blends Steen’s love of folk revivalist material, protest songs, and madrigals with her conservatory-honed indie-rock sensibilities. Old Father Eternity is also an ongoing experiment in ethnomusicology, as much of their music has its roots in Celtic and Appalachian folk. Between indie-flavoured originals, harmonium pieces, and rousing, half-improvised renditions of traditional songs, Steen’s sound is timeless and forward-looking all at once.
