‘When I first heard Harry singing I was blown away by his self assured mature delivery, all tied down with Yorkshire humour. I booked him instantly to appear at Area 2 in Beverley. Watch out Martin Simpson, Harry Rowland is behind you!!’
-Sam Pirt, Beverly Festival Organiser & Folkworks Co-Director
'A fiercely talented young man; not only a superb guitarist but an
excellent and assured vocalist with an engaging onstage (and offstage)
personality and a winning way with an audience. He's also writing some
great songs which stand well up alongside a comprehensive repertoire of
well-chosen contemporary acoustic classics.. Harry Rowland is going to be mega or I'll eat my CD collection.'
- Jacey Bedford , Jacey Bedford tour management.
'We've followed Harry’s career with interest since he won our young
musician's competition at the age of just 15, head and shoulders above
much older and more experienced competitors. He was good then, but he's
even better now. He's improved and matured every year since and if he
keeps on going at this rate we'll soon be able to boast 'we booked him
first' when he's topping festival bills. We love Harry Rowland - and
even better, our audience does, too.'
- Birdsedge Village Festival Committee.
'A delight to work with. Totally professional both onstage and in the studio. I have immense respect for Harry as a musician.'
- Brian Bedford, Park Head Studio.
‘Harry Rowland has one of those voices that you think shouldn’t be allowed in someone so young. Rarely will you see a performer with such power and emotion that he is able to captivate an audience and stun them into silence. Coupled with some of the finest and sensitive guitar playing around, he is certainly someone to watch and envy’.
- Tom Besford, The Sage, Gateshead
