Notes
-  Rosie Stewart, from Belcoo, County Fermanagh, is among the most distinguished of Irish traditional singers. Chosen as "Traditional Singer of the Year" for 2004 by the Irish Language Television Station, TG4, her distinctive voice and style, the dramatic intensity of her "big" song performances and the wicked pleasure she takes in comic ones, make her one of the most sought after singers in Ireland. She has performed throughout Ireland, on radio and television, and in Britain and North America. She has been singing for as long as she can remember and attributes her love of songs to her late father, the singer Packie McKeaney, a major influence and a great encouragement in her career. Stewart is noted for her artistry, her forceful, direct manner and purity of voice and style. She sings local Fermanagh songs including "Adieu to Lovely Garrison," the title of her highly acclaimed CD on Spring Records (1998).
