Known for her love of sparkle and bling, quirky laugh, and warm, genuine personality, world-class improv violinist and vocalist Rosemary Siemens has mesmerized audiences around the world since the age of three. Hailing from a century-family-farm in Plum Coulee, Manitoba, but currently based in Vancouver, BC, Rosemary is a small-town farm girl dominating the world-stage playing a 300-year-old violin named “Sparkle” that was played in King Louis XIV’s orchestra.
She’s performed four times at New York’s Carnegie Hall, played private concerts for Donald Trump, President Jimmy Carter and 16-time GRAMMY Award-winner David Foster, and was the first violinist to perform at the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican since its first mass in 1483. Rosemary has performed in over twenty countries as well as the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics, Hockey Night in Canada and concerts for Rolls Royce, Lamborghini, Bentley, Vancouver International Film Festival, Vancouver Fashion Week and L’Oréal Paris.
In addition to a demanding performing and touring schedule, Rosemary was recently featured as a star on the world premiere of The Food Network’s new hit show “Chef In Your Ear”. She was also awarded the prestigious Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her significant contribution to the arts in Canada.
In August 2016, Rosemary’s hometown of Plum Coulee Manitoba, unveiled a sign in her honour at the edge of the town that reads, “Plum Coulee, Home of Rosemary Siemens.” It inspired her to write, record and launch her debut bluegrass album entitled, Plum Coulee, My Home, featuring Rosemary & The Sweet Sound Revival, being released Fall, 2016.
“Through this album, I have shared my stories and I hope that you will get a glimpse of who I am and the faith that I hold in my heart. I hope this album inspires you to ‘Let It Shine’, ‘Have a Little Faith’, and if you dare, go ‘Barefoot ‘N Bling’.”
