Knockcroghery date for renowned singer Rosie

2017 promises to get off to a great start as South Roscommon Singers Circle welcomes Rosie Stewart as special guest for our first session of the New Year, at Murray’s Bar, Knockcroghery, on Saturday, 7th of January at 9 pm.

  Rosie Stewart, from Belcoo, County Fermanagh, is among the most distinguished of Irish traditional singers. Her distinctive voice and style, the dramatic intensity of her ‘big’ song performances and the wicked pleasure she takes in comic ones, make her one of the most sought after singers in Ireland.

  She has performed throughout Ireland, on radio and television, and in Britain and North America. She has been singing for as long as she can remember and attributes her love of songs to her late father, the singer Packie McKeaney, a major influence and a great encouragement in her career. Stewart is noted for her artistry, her forceful, direct manner and purity of voice and style.
