The Rowan Tree are a group of musicians from Cornwall and Norfolk who play familiar, undiscovered and original tunes and songs. While in Ireland, Richard, Tom, Laura and Neil began jamming together in the house they were sharing and quickly began developing sets of tunes both traditional and original – finding they had their own unique sound and rapport with one another. They decided to continue exploring this more traditional, Celtic sound when they returned to Cornwall and very quickly The Rowan Tree had cemented itself as a band.
The band released their first self titled EP in April 2018 which they recorded, mixed, produced and mastered themselves. In 2018, The Rowan Tree represented Cornwall at the Pan Celtic festival placing 2nd in the International Song Contest after a dramatic 1st place tie situation with Ireland, and have also become the first Cornish act since Gwenno in 2003 to be selected to represent Cornwall at Liet International in May this year with their song ‘Tresor’.
