May the Folk be with you!
"Rowan & The Rose" is the musical duo of Arthur Rowan and Kelly Morris Rowan. They offer a mix of traditional celtic music, historical tunes, and original songs in the genre of Geek Folk. The two performers blend their voices in harmony with the aid of guitar, Irish whistle, drum, and the occasional hurdy-gurdy.
"Rowan & the Rose" began as a musical venture for Arthur and Kelly back in 2011. Having met at the PA Ren Faire (where they both performed - and started dating), they were looking for a way to continue their creativity as a team. With a few rented costumes and a guitar, they made their debut at the NJ Renaissance Faire during its second year of existence. Taking on the names of 'Rowan the Bard' and 'Rose McGann', and with only six songs to start... they began what has proved to be a very successful journey!
In their five year life-span, Rowan & the Rose have performed at numerous places: the New Jersey Renaissance Faire, the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire, the Tennessee Renaissance Festival, the Lady of the Lakes Renaissance Festival, the Sarasota Medieval Fair, at the New York Public Library's Family Medieval Gala, and as an opening act for Blackmore's Night. They are currently based in Orlando, FL.
