About Pete Sutherland & Rose Diamond
Pete Sutherland and his partner Rose Diamond (aka Karen), Champlain Valley born-and-raised, are twenty-five-year-plus veterans of the New England and national folk scenes.
Pete and Karen are known for their wide knowledge of traditional music and music-making styles, their songwriting talents and their joy of performing for and with listening and dancing audiences of every description.
Between them they play many instruments, most of them quite well indeed, but it’s their two very different voices singing together that identifies them best. At schools, libraries, dances, festivals and celebrations and in their commitment to rooting out the best of the old and injecting their own sensibilities as well, Rose and Pete represent the living folk tradition — links in the endless chain of people making music that breathes and dances in their own rhythm, that tells their own stories.
