Hello and welcome to the Emerald Rose Press Page! Our intent for this section is to provide reviewers, venue managers, webmasters, radio stations, and the "general press" with information you need and want about our band.

Feel free to quote, copy, distribute, and liberally appropriate from this page as desired. If you have need of a printed "press package" or other promotional materials, please email brian@emeraldrose.com.

[1-liner] Emerald Rose performs rousing, energetic folk rock rooted in the New Celtic tradition.
[paragraph] Emerald Rose is a four-man folk rock band in the New Celtic tradition with a rich, original "world fusion" sound with influences ranging from the Chieftains to Jethro Tull. Blending harmony vocals, pennywhistle, Irish pipes, world percussion, driving guitars and bass, their music ranges from traditional jigs and reels to original folk rock and pop numbers. Many of the band's musical themes draw from Celtic myth and legend, but their style is modern, upbeat and accessible.
