Rua is Gaelic for red, red as in the flame of Roxanne Young’s hair, red as in the fire that dances in her eyes as she plays the fiddle, red as in the flames fanned by the fantastic dervish-like playing of David Morrissey on guitar and banjo/bouzouki.
Roxanne is one of only 14 musicians in the world to be honoured on the renowned Berklee College of Music’s stringed instrument Hall of Fame. She has worked with Aerosmith, Disney, Cirque de Soleil, Alanis Morissette and many more. She has performed all over the world and has graced the stage of Carnegie Hall with her breathtaking musical genius. She is the founder of the Calgary Contemporary School of music and also one of the founders and creative forces behind the international touring sensation Barrage.
David Morrissey is an incredibly gifted guitarist, his passionate playing is without equal in Calgary and leaves audiences speechless at both his speed and precision. Together David and Roxanne offer up the very best in Irish traditional music. You are in for a real treat!
