A young folk singer from Wiltshire, Rosie Hood is known for her strong, pure voice and engaging solo performance. 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 will see Rosie Hood release her first full-length solo album The Beautiful & The Actual, a collection of old and new folk songs.
