7.30pm for a 8.00pm start
Live at Sam’s is pleased to announce an evening with Rosie Hood and Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne. Rosie Hood is a young folk singer from Wiltshire, who now resides in Sheffield. She is known for her strong, pure voice and engaging solo performance. A BBC Performing Arts Fellow in 2015 and a 2016 Horizon Award nominee at the Radio 2 Folk Awards, Rosie has become more than purely a traditional singer. On the cover of her debut album, Rosie Hood looks as if she’s stepped in from an Edwardian parlour; appropriate enough for a record that features songs collected from pre-WW1 Wiltshire by local poet Alfred Williams.
“She has a magical voice, an awareness of her roots, a sense of fun on stage, and of course, makes the most marvellous music ” RNR Magazine
Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne is a folk musician and singer. Cohen has been a musician since the age of 6 and took to squeezeboxes in his teens and has since developed into a fine player of both the melodeon and anglo concertina. As an instrumentalist Cohen is experienced in playing for dancing, playing as part of groups, both as an accompanying and as a lead instrument, and playing as a soloist. Cohen is also a well-regarded singer and in 2014 won Bromyard Folk Festival’s Future of Young Folk Award for singing.
These two are sure to provide an amazing evening of young talent so come along and why not bring a friend? Reserve your seats whilst you still can!
