Rosemary Lawton, 2019 ECMA Roots/Traditional nominee, 2018 MusicNL Celtic/Traditional and Female Artist of the Year nominee, is an up-and-coming force within the Newfoundland music scene.
Her music is a hybrid of both classical and traditional genres. There is an underlying hint of classical influence in her unique arrangements of both traditional songs and her original compositions. Her voice is reminiscent of the high soprano Celtic singing of Ireland but with a punch.
Rosemary is helping to preserve Newfoundland’s rich tradition by collecting, recording, and performing Newfoundland traditional music.
