ROSS NEILSEN BAND LIVE MUSIC
You've heard him before and love what he does! Ross Neilsen is coming back with his band for his fourth visit to share his version of the blues with Sumac Ridge.

He’s taking strong, timeless material to the place that matters: The People. Seven Years, over 1200 shows and more than half a million kilometers traveled. In a time of corporate cookie-cutter music, this is the return to real. Having received awards and numerous nominations Neilsen sells out everytime he plays Sumac Ridge. Book your tickets early!
