Emerson Torrey, Director of Information Technology at DiPrete Engineering, will be inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame on April 26th.
Emerson was a guitarist with The Schemers who were central to the Rhode Island music scene during the Punk/New Wave era in the late 1970s. Along with singer-songwriter Mark Cutler, Emerson later formed the Raindogs and released two critically acclaimed records for Atco Records.
He also toured nationally with Bob Dylan, Warren Zevon and Don Henley. The Schemers recently reunited for a series of sold-out concerts and began recording their first full-length album in 2015.
