New to gigmasters (December 2014), The Rose of Omagh performs for weddings, cocktail hours, celebrations, parties, pubs, and restaurants. We have also performed for World Music classes at Penn State University's, Berks campus. Our sets consists of jigs, reels, hornpipes, marches, Scottish strathspey, Irish folk songs, Irish drinking songs, and Irish ballads performed on Irish flute/tin whistle, fiddle, and guitar with vocals. We perform in traditional pub style as a review states:
"They advertise that they are reminiscent of a "real" traditional pub session and having lived nearly a decade in Ireland, I can say that they could sit in with the best. Excellent."

Birthday party attendee review:
"I was one of the 20 plus attendees at the birthday party where The Rose of Omagh entertained us with great Irish music. The selection of music was right on for the guest of honor.
The sound level was great to allow for all to listen to the music and still have a conversation without shouting at each other.
The combination of guitar, violin and tin whistle/flute along with the play list was outstanding.
I for one would recommend this trio to anyone that enjoys Irish music."
