Fireflies in the Rain
Rick Ross has absorbed guitar styles ranging from finger-picked country blues (including bottle-neck or slide guitar) as practiced by the young Tom Rush, to bluegrass flat-picking as practiced by players such as John Herald and Norman Blake. He still performs many traditional and jazz-era tunes, as well as originals, and has adapted much of his repertoire to the unique sound of the 12-string guitar. His eclectic repertoire, although centered around the blues, ranges through country, bluegrass, and traditional and contemporary folk music. Originally from New York State by way of Florida, Rick now lives in Granby, Connecticut.
