The Rosinators


 Biography

The Rosinators formed in 2001 and quickly established a reputation for their raw, uncompromising mix of bluegrass, Cajun and gospel country, and their dynamic three-part vocal harmonies. Twin-fiddles and acoustic guitar made up their distinctive sound, augmented with banjo and mandolin, with the addition of string bass and drums for some shows. The band, whose repertoire ranged from traditional a cappella to their own twenty-first century country blues, played roots music from the heart.

Since the release of The Rosinators’ eponymous debut CD in June 2003, a busy touring schedule took them to new audiences in Holland, Ireland and the UK, including Glastonbury Festival, Brighton, Bath, Cheltenham and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, in addition to playing main stages at major British folk festivals from Bridgnorth to Broadstairs. In 2004 they were selected as one of six finalists in the
Glastonbury Unsigned Band Competition and in 2005 they received the "Hotdisc Best Track of the Year Award" at the UK Country Radio Awards Show.

The band lived in London, and although a lot of their shows took them out of town, they could be seen there throughout the year at clubs such as the 12 Bar, The Borderline, and the Astoria, where they appeared with the Alabama 3.

The Rosinators enjoyed extensive global airplay, the majority of this in North America, on both mainstream and specialist stations - a testament to both their original sound and to their authentic delivery.

Paul Castle (guitar, banjo, vocals) was an original member of the UK acoustic outfit Sons of Fat Harry. He is a songwriter and composer whose material has been taken into the charts by Frances and Mary Black and whose music for UK TV has had global exposure - see www.paulcastle.co.uk

Will Sneyd (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), was a founding member of Ti-fer Cajun Dance Band. He has toured with Alabama 3 and features on their albums 'Exile in Coldharbour Lane' and 'Last Train to Mashville'. Will was also a member of Scott Moods.

Fliss Premru (fiddle, vocals) was a founding member of Joli Blon Cajun Band which has recently reformed - see their Facebook page [ Bookings ]
