Róisín Dubh to release first album in a decade
Posted on 06/02/2019
roisin dubh logoIn 2015 students in East Rochester’s Róisín Dubh began the process of recording an album. In 2017, realizing how much better they had gotten, everything was scrapped and restarted. Now, late in the 2018-19 school year, after hundreds of hours of recording and production work, The Black Rose album is complete and has been mastered at Abbey Road Studios in London, England.

Members of Róisín Dubh will celebrate with a release party on Friday, June 21 at McGinnity's, 534 W Ridge Rd, Rochester, NY 14615.
