Justus was born December 11, 1995 in Piedmont, Missouri to Jeff and Danita Ross.
From the beginning Justus had a love for the guitar and displayed his interest early on. When he was 4, Justus was able to play a couple of songs which he had taught himself to play. By the age of 5 he began taking guitar lessons, increasing his love for the instrument and his love for music. Many dedicated people invested their time with Justus to teach him to play. Justus has extended his musical ability to a variety of instruments.
The Ross Family Bluegrass Band consists of Mom, Dad, Charity and Justus. They share the love of God and the gospel of Christ through their music.
I enjoy researching Bluegrass, Bluegrass Gospel, and Country birthdays, anniversaries and interesting trivia dates. I am a piano/organ performance major who has taught privately and served as church accompanist since 1968 in North Carolina and Central Kentucky. Although classically trained, I appreciate all genres of music. My mother, who was also a church musician and taught public school music grades K-12, knew that Bluegrass music was the purest American music. She always introduced her students to this fine genre and began my musical studies with her at age 2. Bach to Berachah Valley, Mozart to Jimmy Martin, Sibelius to Stanley Brothers, the list goes on, I hope you find some moments of enjoyment and learn a few interesting facts along the way.
I am thankful for the many resources we have at our fingertips including Google. FaceBook and BluegrassBios by Wayne Rice. It was he who inspired me to tackle the task of trying to pass on knowledge about Bluegrass music. Thanks Wayne~!
