Emily Snyder Brings the Art to Big Heavy
Words by Sarah Frazier. Photo by Samantha Donnelly.
Emily Snyder is now jamming with BHW: Coming from Newtown, CT, Emily is currently a senior at Champlain College studying Graphic Design. Quite the worker, Emily has held positions from little boutiques to Henry’s Diner, and now a jewelry making business that she started in 2010 and continues today. A vegetarian, movie lover, and people person, Vermont turned out to be a new home for her. “I love VT for the people…how artistic the community is and the wide variety of awesome local music.” While first hearing about Big Heavy World through some local artists, it wasn’t until her school promoted volunteer opportunities at BHW that she was insistent on getting involved. Some of her favorites in music include: The Grateful Dead, Kung Fu, Les Claypool, Goosepimp, and locals such as Funkwagon and Blues for Breakfast. Emily’s most recent adventure includes a trip to China last spring, where as she tells me, “I had the pleasure of seeing two nights of music at a jazz club in Beijing.” Welcome, welcome, Emily.
