Wendy Ross began playing violin at the age 4. Classically trained, a rapid, high achiever she soon became a protege of one of the North East’s top teachers/violinists, and went on to win festival and music awards.
Many years of experience and further training followed, then playing professionally in orchestras, chamber orchestras, theatres, quartets and solo work both at home and abroad.
However, a desire to learn all other musical genres prompted Wendy to leave the classical world behind and develop her own style, using the influences of jazz, rock, blues, bluegrass and folk which lead on to many years of playing in bands, session/recording work and working with singer-songwriters.
Wendy has appeared in venues and festivals throughout the UK and abroad (including Cropredy and Glastonbury), plus appearances on TV and radio.
Wendy is currently also working with Jon Palmer Acoustic Band and Ade Payne (singer-songwriter) and does occasional guest appearances with Ken Nicol and also the band Captain of the Lost Waves. She’s also working on some recordings with some pro Indian/ traditional punjab musicians based in Bradford.
