Hi! I’m Rosie, and I sing, teach, create and play musical instruments all the live-long day. Board-gamer, cider-maker, song-singer, board-game nerd, appreciator of all the foods. I graduated from Newcastle University’s Folk and Traditional degree with a first in performance and have been performing all over the UK and beyond for the past 6 years in a number of different guises!
I play and sing with The Teacups, Speldosa, and my awesome husband Will in our duo Will Finn and Rosie Calvert – check the “GIGS” tab above to see when we’re next playing near you. In addition to perfoming, I teach singing from my home in Newcastle, write songs and tunes, and record fortnightly music videos with Will.
