Adult Programs and Ensembles
"Songs by Heart"
Ideal for senior groups, this program includes stories and songs learned from Ross's grandparents, along with new and favorite sing-a-long numbers. Ross accompanies himself on guitar, accordion, and a variety of rhythm instruments.
"Scandinavian Songs and Tunes"
A selection of songs from Ross's Swedish heritage, as well as from Norway, Finland, and Denmark, accompanied on guitar and accordion.
Ross & MacKenzie & Northern Gael
Ross Sutter and Laura MacKenzie present concerts and family programs of Scottish and Irish music featuring two outstanding voices accompanied by guitar, wooden flutes, concertina, Scottish smallpipes, border pipes, whistles and bodhran. When joined by fiddler and dancer Danielle Enblom, they become Northern Gael, a powerhouse of Irish and Scottish music.
The Sutter Brothers
When Ross teams up with his brother, award-winning author and poet Barton Sutter, they become The Sutter Brothers. Their thoroughly entertaining blend of music, stories, songs, poetry, and lots of laughter is inspired by their small town roots and Scandinavian heritage. Program choices include North Country Characters, Greet the Folks at Home, and more.
Ross Sutter Scandinavian Trio
When Ross is joined by Cheryl Paschke on nyckelharps and fiddle, and Marya Hart on piano, Scandinavian music and song fill the air. Their programs are a delightful blend of traditional and fun music, dances, games and stories for all ages, with special programs for a Scandinavian Christmas or Swedish Midsummer celebration.
