Rosie Hood is a young traditional
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.

Rosie can currently be seen performing lead vocals in The Dovetail Trio, a band that has bookings across the UK this year.
