Who is Patrick Ross?
Patrick Ross won the Vermont State Fiddle Championship at age 14. He now lives in Newbury, VT with his wife and daughter. He owns and operates Rock Farmer Records and The Patrick Ross Music School. The Patrick Ross Band is a result of turning pandemic lemons into lemonade, or in this case, crabapples into cider. With a halt in touring and live performances, Ross put all his creative energy into writing and rehearsing songs about life in Vermont. "Uncle Joe's Camp" is inspired by Patrick's childhood memories of growing up on the international waters of Lake Wallace in Canaan, Vermont. Another, "Sugar Shack", is about the hustle and excitement of living in a place with four seasons. "Bear Rock Road" is about his mother's farmer-style school bus driving days. "Woodshed" spins around the idea that we all have that certain place we like to go to get a clear head. There are 18 songs in the new collection.
All three band members call the Upper Valley of Vermont their home. Bassist and trumpet player, Mike Conerty, is a native of Long Island, New York. His urban sophistication brings energy and excitement to the group. Drummer, Justin Roman, is a native of The Bronx, NY. His deep musical wisdom and soulful expression bring power to the stage. Front man, Patrick Ross, plays fiddle, guitars, mandolin, banjo, cello and is the lead vocalist. His Vermont roots run deep in folk traditions. "My mother is Quebecois, my father is Acadian and I'm a fifth generation fiddle player." proclaims Ross. Collectively, The Crew blends harmony vocals in a way that supports the story of each song.
Bring a friend or two, come watch and listen to how these Vermont musicians have been spending their pandemic time honing their craft, and let your soul take in some live music again.
