Ross Kirk is a professional twelve string guitarist and vocalist and has now been performing live for seventeen years. Usually he performs solo, but he has also collaborated with other singers and instrumentalists at various events.
Although based in Somerset, Ross's reputation for great vocals, beautiful twelve string guitar work and a genuinely fun event has gained Ross popularity nationally, and he now performs all over the UK, and in 2011 he wowed audiences in Illinois and Wisconsin in the US, and in the summers of 2014, 2015 and 2016 he played several venues on the Amalfi Coast in Italy.
Ross has the advantage of an excellent sound system which can cope with outdoor events as well as a pub or club situation, also, being an acoustic guitarist, he can leave all that behind and do an "up close and personal" gig too. He is very popular at weddings, playing several every year.
Because of the unique and full sound of the twelve string, coupled with Ross's powerful vocals and his large repertoire of lively songs, he is often booked by venues who would normally only consider bands.
Obviously everything came to a halt as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but gigs are starting to appear on the calendar again for the summer of 2021.

Ross also performs as Frank Martino, singing crooning favourites from the 50s and 60s.
