"For nearly 30 years, Ross Sutter has impacted Minnesota through his work with schools and cultural organizations. His [shows] are a lively excursion into diverse cultures, with an emphasis on student involvement. His influence has spread out from his home on Minneapolis’ Nicollet Island to communities large and small throughout Minnesota as well as elsewhere in the U.S. and in Europe. Sutter plays an array of folk instruments—guitar, bodhran, button accordion, dulcimer, bones—but is perhaps best known for his singular baritone voice, performing renditions of Irish, Scottish, Scandinavian, and American traditional and popular songs. Sutter nurtures a passion for the arts in schools and cultural organizations with his engaging performances and long-term residencies.
Sutter has performed on radio, television and at festivals, and works regularly in schools teaching the songs and folk dances that he has collected over the years. His rapport with children is extraordinary, but he also possesses the unique ability to thoroughly entertain the adults in the audience as well. His work is featured on the recordings Walking on Air, Up the Raw, Crossing the Shannon, Hunger No More, Songs By Heart, Over the Water, Ye Banks and Braes, and on his popular children’s CD, Mama Will You Buy Me a Banana?"
Ross has nearly thirty years experience working with children all over the Midwest and in Europe. His performances are a lively excursion into diverse cultures, with an emphasis on student involvement. He sings, plays, and demonstrates instruments and teaches song games and folk dances. 
 “Jack’s winsome personality, banjo-pickin’ and toybox dancin’ storytelling made for a terrific evening for concert goers of all ages. His dynamic and energetic rapport with the audience creates a chemistry which is truly unique...”

Jack’s concert is truly a rainbow of tale/tune magic; our living folk tradition at its best! Jack’s rare ability to delight an audience of all ages shines in his trademark songs like “Velcro” and “Googolplex,” and each show features his (almost) famous amplified toy box lid. Come prepared for a rich time of stories, instruments, audience involvement and a chance to experience living music the way it used to be. Jack adapts easily to any age group, is easy to work with, and leaves people feeling more hopeful and a little more human.
