Miss Irenie Rose
Miss Irenie Rose is a singer-songwriter. Using vocals, guitar and occasionally a loop pedal, she has a whimsical and quirky style with a voice often compared to Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez.
With inspiration from an older sibling, (Elsa Jean McTaggart) Miss Irenie Rose, a singer-songwriter from the Isle of Lewis who is said to have a voice like Joni Mitchell, decided to give music a try. Since then, she has supported both local and touring artists, played festivals across the country, and made multiple radio and television appearances.
Some of the artists she has supported include Nathaniel Rateliff, Pete Roe, Ben Howard, Rachel Sermanni, Rae Morris, Manran, Larkin Poe, John Smith and KAN.
In early 2013 she took part in a documentary about Celtic Connections presented by Julie Fowlis and was nominated for best newcomer in the Scottish Alternative Music Awards. Irenie also reached the semi-finals of the Radio 2 Young Folk Musician of the Year Awards 2014.
She has a four track demo out which can be found through bandcamp and facebook.
