Irish traditional song - Roisin White was born near Kilkeel, in the Mourne mountains area in south County Down. She remembers her mother singing all kinds of songs around the house which gave her a life-long interest in songs.

Learning the Irish language at school, she became interested in the literature and poetry of her country, realising that many of the poems were in fact songs. In 1974 she went to Inisheer, the smallest of the Aran islands to improve her Irish. There she became aware of their traditional singing or, as she perceived it then, natural singing.

Roisín’s love of song was furthered when she moved to Armagh to teach and was able to meet the many renowned traditional singers of the area.

Roisin sings a eclectic mix of songs which have been passed onto her by the likes of Joe Holmes, Eddie Butcher, Paddy Tunney, Bridget Tunney and Robert Cinnamond. Nowadays she is increasing in demand to sing all over Ireland as well as festivals in England and America.
