Rosie Stewart

Rosie Stewart is a singer and ambassador for traditional Ulster singing. With a style that is entirely her own, she picks and chooses her repertoire from songs that might be 200 or 20 years old.

Born Rosie McKeaney in the townland of Cashel in the parish of Garrison, Co Fermanagh, Stewart has music and song in her veins.

Like the other local singing families, the Gallaghers, the Timoneys, the Burnses and the Joneses, the McKeaneys were sought after performers at private house parties, pub sessions, ceilis, concerts and parochial nights.

Rosie has appeared on radio and TV shows including The Pure Drop on RTE, The Corner House on the BBC and she recorded songs for a Channel 4 series about Irish history. And in 2004, Rosie received a TG4 award for Best Traditional Singer.
