Ross Sermons & Louise Bell Gibson

Ross Sermons and Louise Bell were both born and raised in the south, even though it was a half a world apart, Ross hails from North Carolina, USA, and Louise from Melbourne, Australia. They both call Tasmania home but travel to far distant shores to share their unique blend of music rich with harmonies, rhythm, and masterful picking. Ross brings his skills as a guitarist, singer and bassist, as well as his session and touring credentials of over 30 years to the table. Louise has performed in Australia and the US with songs she has culled from the 1920s throughout the present day in genres such as jazz, old time, country and folk. She always puts her own special brand on them in an honest way with her vocals, guitar and ukulele. The two have a very special chemistry that brings the audience into their performance, whether it be original songs or cherished covers, and that makes for a great combination.
