Folk music reminds us of where we came from and informs us about where we’re going – or at least that’s the bracing ethos of Montreal-based band Rosier. A group who spent their formative years wrapped in rich, untouched musical traditions, they are just as attuned to the present and the future, challenging and redefining their world through a modern lens. Reclaiming and interpreting the romantic traditions of Québécois folk, the bilingual band Rosier was born from a place of living heritage. These offspring of a pioneering generation of Canadian-American folk musicians were raised together in the underbelly of music festivals with folk music beneath their fingernails and tradition on their tongues. The band has created a layered sound that connects generations through origin and craft, reclaiming and interpreting the romantic traditions of Québécois folk through a modern lens.
