A folk singer/songwriter from Wiltshire, Rosie Hood is known for her strong, pure voice and captivating performances. A BBC Performing Arts Fellow in 2015 and a 2016 Horizon Award nominee, Rosie has become more than purely a traditional singer. Having learnt folk songs from an early age, 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. June 2017 saw Rosie Hood release her first full-length solo album The Beautiful & The Actual, a collection of old and new folk songs, described by The Guardian as “a classy arrival” ****.
Rosie has toured the UK and Central Canada both solo and as part of The Dovetail Trio as well as collaborating and performing with a host of fellow musicians including Emily Portman, Jefferson Hamer, Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne and the Andy May Trio. Rosie is currently working with talented accompanists Lucy Huzzard (melodeon) and Nicola Beazley (fiddle) in addition to performing solo.
