    Emily Fawcett bio

    Emily has been playing in the woods since childhood, she has practiced and taught bushcraft, nature awareness, rewilding and rites of passage for 15 years in New Zealand and the UK. She is also a singer-songwriter whose music evokes the land she loves and her regular practice of tracking the woods and moorland around her home in the Dart Valley. Music has always been a focal point of her teaching, from Forest School to rites of passage. In her recent Masters degree in Experimental Archaeology she researched the acoustic world of tribal peoples and their relationship to non-human species through an ability to tap into a universal language of nature. She teaches tracking and crafts, masterminds the paleo menu and holds the question “what does it mean to be indigenous to the land I live on?” Cohosting The Old Way is definitely helping her find some answers!
