Fiddler Patrick Ross: HopStop

October 05

Traditional and original toe-tappin' tunes by a fifth-generation-Vermonter virtuoso!


Patrick Ross's story began in the borderlands of Quebec in Vermont's Northeast Kingdom where Ross learned traditional folk tunes from his father and began his journey as a fifth-generation fiddle player. He won the Vermont-State Fiddle Championship at age fourteen. He has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and shared stages with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Paul McCartney. In 2012, he was invited to perform at both the Calvin Coolidge Theater in The Library of Congress and The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. He has had the pleasure of working with Christopher Lloyd in a recent production of Call Of The Wild 3D and assisted in the scoring of the film. He now lives in Newbury, Vermont, with his wife and daughter. He works and teaches in collaboration with the Vermont Folklife Center and has recently started an independent record label called Rock Farmer Records with the mission of producing, recording and preserving roots music. His solo concerts include a worldwide range of fiddle styles as well as songs he has penned with guitar, banjo, mandolin and cello.

The 3 pm performance in Claremont has been canceled.
