Patrick Ross was born and raised in Canaan, Vermont, on the border of Quebec and New Hampshire. There, his Dad taught him how to fish, hunt, and how to play music without reading notes. He wanted to be like him, so he started learning a mix of Outlaw Country and French Canadian Folk tunes at about age 6. He was lucky to have begun so young. It was a head start that led him to his first real gig at age 11. He has branched out and has been playing professionally ever since.
