Folk Bands and Artists
Rosie Hood is a young folk singer from Wiltshire. Having started learning traditional songs at an early age from her family, Rosie is now well known for her strong, pure voice and engaging solo performance. Rosie has a keen interest in the history of traditional songs, particularly those of her native Wiltshire, where she has spent time researching in the local archives and developing a broad repertoire of local songs.
She was a finalist in the 2011 New Roots competition for young musicians, and won both the Open Mic Competition at the 2011 Shrewsbury Folk Festival and the 2012 Fred Jordan Memorial Award (for Traditional singing). Rosie released a solo EP in 2011 that was very well received. She has since performed at many of the country´s leading folk festivals and folk clubs, both as a headline booking and supporting a number of established folk artists, including the Cecil Sharp Project and Nic Jones.
Rosie can currently be seen performing lead vocals in The Dovetail Trio, an exciting new traditional English band also featuring BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee Jamie Roberts and Newcastle Folk Degree alumnus Matt Quinn.
