Welcome to the first installment of my “Song of the Week” feature.
To keep things simple, I decided to do a traditional song this week. I love Celtic music, and this song is one of my favorites.
By the way, I really hate the static image that appears in the player before the video begins. I was actually in a great mood at the time, no matter what my expression seems to say.
Devilishly handsome and incredibly modest, Kevin Edward Rose is a rare talent in a world of.... Wait a minute. I'm being told that I should have someone else write this bio as I may not be sufficiently objective. OK, hang on.
Combine the grit of Lou Reed with the emotional complexity of Loudon Wainwright III and the intimate conviction of Christy Moore, and the result would sound a lot like Kevin Edward Rose. Kevin's music can bring you to laughter and it can bring you to tears, sometimes both in the same song.
It has been said that there are three types of performers in the world. There are so-so performers, there are pretty good performers, and, maybe once in a generation, a performer comes along with an intensity and a magnetism that can only only make the world a better place. Kevin falls into the second category; he's a pretty good performer.
An award-winning amateur winemaker, Kevin is 47 years old and lives in Richmond, Indiana.
