“Rosie & Rowan are at the forefront of the modern folk scene individually; together they form a powerful partnership that will surely accelerate their rise to the top. Songs crafted of the highest quality, sensitively delivered with haunting harmonies and a cheeky smile!” – Heard And Seen
Rosie is a folk singer/songwriter from Midhurst, West Sussex. Having grown up surrounded by traditional music (and dancing with Knockhundred Shuttles!), her voice possesses a naturalness and maturity, bringing “a ruby-richness to lyrics new and old”. (Folk Radio UK)
After winning the newcomer competition at Ely Festival in 2011, Rosie worked hard to carve out her niche on the UK folk circuit. She released her EP “Somewhere North” in 2012 and has since played numerous festivals and folk clubs across the land. In 2013 she was nominated as a finalist for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk award before joining the up-and-coming London-Irish band CrossHarbour, who subsequently released their eponymous debut album.
Rosie is currently touring her debut album ‘Rise Aurora’ with fiddle-singer Rowan Piggott and we are delighted to welcome them back to Watford Folk Club again.
