Betsy Rose is a singer, songwriter and community activist whose insight, warmth, humor, wit and wisdom have added a wealth of songs to the world of folk and progressive music for over thirty years.

The songs of the Civil Rights movement, the hymns in her minister fatherâs church, classical musical training, and the songwriters of the burgeoning folk movement of the 60âs provided rich soil and deep roots for Roseâs emerging gifts as a songwriter and singer. Her songs are an artful blend of beautifully crafted lyrics and music, with messages that inspire listeners to greater faith in the human capacity to create change and "a world of peace, or promise and of grace" (from "Real To Me")

Rose was a pioneering voice in the emerging Womenâs Cultural Movement of the 70âs and 80âs- singing at national and international festivals, touring the United States and Canada. Artists such as Pete Seeger, Ronnie Gilbert, and Bobbi McFerron have sung and/or recorded her songs, as have numerous Womenâs and Peace Choruses throughout the country. Contemporary cultural visionaries such as Thich Nhat Hanh, Matthew Fox, and Joanna Macy have included her music in their work.

Betsy has performed and taught widely throughout the United States and Canada, India, Australia and the Czech Republic. She has sung at festivals, and at conferences for spiritual organizations, activists, educators, and parents, including the California Early Childhood Educators, La Leche League, Association of Humanistic Psychology, Mindful Schools, Omega Institute, and AIDS and Hospice services.

The events during and after 9/11 inspired Rose to form the Bay Area Singing for Peace project--groups of non professional singers gathering in public sites (BART stations, Farmerâs Markets, etc) to sing songs of healing and peace. She also leads Womansong Circles, monthly participatory singing groups for women, in the Bay Area (CA) and nationally.

Her work with children and families includes serving as Music Specialist at Cornell School in Albany, CA, and training teachers in using music to teach conflict resolution, diversity awareness and social skills to young children. Betsy is also active in the Mindful Schools movement, bringing songs to in-school programs of Mindfulness Practice for students and teachers. She is on the teaching staff of the family practice program of Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre, CA.

Roseâs numerous recordings include " Motherlight", songs from the journey of parenting, and "Heart of a Child", inspirational songs for educators and parents. "In My Two Hands" is music inspired by the teachings and poetry of Thich Nhat Hanh. In 2006, Betsy released "Welcome To The Circle", a selection of songs from her monthly Wo,mansong Circles, sung by Betsy and a chorus of womenâs voices. Her latest CD for children and families, "Calm Down Boogie", celebrates the joys of simple living, homespun happiness, earth care and family bonds. And "Real To Me" (2011) offers a stirring and beautifully crafted collection of songs for our times- songs of hope and faith, o humor in the face of the rigors of childraising,
inner healing, and new visions for the times we are living in

Betsy Rose lives in Berkeley California with her partner David Stark, and 19 year-old son Matthew.
