Róisín Ward Morrow

Róisín Ward Morrow is a fiddle player and folk singer from Co. Louth. Her debut album of slowairs, By the Light of the Moon, was launched to a sold out audience during Fleadh Cheoil 2019 and has been met with great prestige nationally and internationally. Having grown up in Dundalk amongst a rich tradition of fiddle players and violinists, Róisín earned a BMus (Hons) at the TU Dublin Conservatoire in both traditional fiddle and classical violin. She has toured across Europe multiple times with Belfast tenor Peter Corry, and also with renowned composer and pianist, Carl Hession.

After deciding to put pen to paper during multiple lockdowns, Róisín is also a tune composer and is one of 7 Irish women to have their tunes published in Tunes from the Women, a book of over 150 contemporary tunes written by 100 female composers from Britain and Ireland. Róisín’s new EP, Whereon She Stands, represents a period of rerooting and beginning again. This was recorded with guitarist Breifne Holohan, the pair have established a long lasting musical partnership and have just returned from performing in Italy.
