12 Days to Go

Here’s a sample of tone of our Headline Acts –

THE ROSELLYS

“The Rosellys capture the essence of country, with folk ingredients baked into a transatlantic roots fusion”

“Musically, they’re voices blend  with lyrical references to both the UK and US alongside well pitched bass,                                                                stunning pedal steel and fiddle to create a sound that walks the fine line between Celtic folk and Americana”

“A brilliant band and a good example of that crossover where Britain meets America and it makes a very special sound indeed”

She has recorded a number of projects, performed around the world and can be heard on several radio and television shows.
