A folk singer/songwriter from Wiltshire, Rosie Hood is known for her strong, pure voice and captivating performances as well as being a member of The Dovetail Trio. A BBC Performing Arts Fellow and 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee, Rosie has become more than purely a traditional singer. Immersed in traditional music most of her life, 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 “poetic class” ****.
“She can certainly sing, that’s for sure, delivering balladry with the assurance, confidence and composure of someone who has been immersed in traditional music most of her life” * * * * * fRoots
