A professional folk singer since 1969,
Tony Rose is regarded as probably the finest of the revivallsts. His background at Oxford, where he was a choral scholar at Queens and his subsequent years as a teacher are incorporated in his relaxed, sure vocal style and his humour and enthusiasm in relating the history of a song.
