Na Rósaí

Na Rósaí will be celebrating their CD release.

In 2010 Erik Killops returned to Portland, Oregon after receiving his bachelor’s degree in Irish Fiddle at the University of Limerick in Ireland. Shortly after his homecoming he met recent New Hampshire transplant and bouzouki player Richie Rosencrans and California native and piper Preston Howard at sessions around town. After realizing common musical interests they began a weekly performance at a local watering hole. In the autumn of 2012 flute player Conor Ó Bryan moved to Portland from Chico, California and immediately joined the ranks of the group which had finally, after well over a year of performing, decided on a name: Na Rósaí. The band is currently finishing work on their first studio album with plans to release in the summer of 2014.

Na Rósaí performs traditional Irish, Appalachian, Scottish, and Breton tunes and songs on fiddle, flute, uilleann pipes, bouzouki, and whistles. Their focus has been exploring the links between the musical traditions of the British Isles and North America by arranging tunes from the two regions with a traditional sensibility. Na Rósaí is Irish Gaelic for "The Roses" in honor of Portland, the City of Roses.
