Rosemary Lawton’s music career has taken off in the past couple of years due to her performances with the Pints, Eastern Passage and most recently with Beyond the Overpass in their summer season in Twillingate. A recent graduate of Memorial University with a focus in Violin and true fiddle player at heart, Rosemary has played in a number of local groups including the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, the MUN Chamber Orchestra, the Traveling Gnomes, the Hugh Scott Band, the Celtic Fiddlers, the Step Fiddlers, and Todd Scott and the Sleveens. Because of these strong associations with both traditional and classical music, Rosemary’s music takes on a “fusion” of both genres, with a constant hint of classical in her traditional arrangements and compositions. Her voice is reminiscent of the high soprano celtic singing of Ireland but with a punch, and you can hear more of her singing in her performances with the Pints and the Traveling Gnomes. You can also hear Rosemary on albums such as Todd Scott’s Define, The Step Fiddlers’ “Fiddling in the Fog,” and two of her original pieces can be heard on the Celtic Fiddlers’ latest album “Times and Tides."
