We’re very excited and fortunate to have this amazing duo perform for a non-ticketed pub hang! This is one you definitely want to put on your schedule to attend!!
Rosie Newton and Richie Stearns are a dynamic duo performing music rooted in the Americana tradition. Over the past six years they have collaborated in various projects and formed Richie and Rosie after hours of jamming in Stearns’ kitchen, experimenting with traditional and original songs.
Rosie Newton is a talented fiddler and singer who was raised in a musical family, and found her musical inspirations by attending music parties and fiddle camps at a young age. She has toured with The Duhks, Louisiana legend Preston Frank, Kristin Andreassen, her mother’s Scottish band, Ferintosh, and The Pearly Snaps. Stearns is a legendary banjo player and singer, and has led bands including The Horse Flies, and Donna the Buffalo. He has also played with countless others, and tours with Natalie Merchant.
In combining their musical efforts, Richie and Rosie draw from American old-time music, Appalachian folk, blues, African, rock, cajun, and country music. These two take the fiddle, banjo combination to new levels as they continue to expand the boundaries of this tradition.
