Framed by centuries’ old churches, pubs, and a perpetually grey sky, “visionary” (Ladygunn) Vermont singer-songwriter Henry Jamison and Irish folk singer Rosie Carney channeled the stark, historical energy of Dublin into a live cover of Villagers’ “Hot Scary Summer” while on their European tour this fall. Henry’s electric, Jeff Buckley-esque chords and haunting falsetto blend with Rosie’s pure, mature-beyond-her-twenty-years voice to create a cutting emotional depth that builds on lyrical themes of a relationship in it twilight.

Henry just released his synth-tinged folk debut ‘The Wilds,’ which has accrued more than 40M Spotify spins and scored 4 stars as The Observer’s album of the week – and he’s getting ready for tours with Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker, Darlingside, and Caroline Rose in 2018.

Rosie recently released new single Winter, produced with her frequent collaborator Orri McBrearty in her hometown of Donegal. The song is just another part of her exciting year so far, having played shows supporting Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Saint Sister and Haux, co-headlining dates with Henry Jamison in the UK and Ireland, alongside festival slots at Latitude, Seven Layers, and the Bon Iver, National, and Cillian Murphy curated Sounds From A Safe Harbour.
