Neil Rossi was introduced to bluegrass in 1960. He learned bluegrass banjo, then guitar, mandolin, and fiddle. In the late 1960s he founded The Spark Gap Wonder Boys, which won the Old-Time band contest at the Union Grove in 1970. Through college and graduate school he played with several high-profile bands, including the David Bromberg Band. In New York City he played fiddle with The Yankee Rebels and Diamonds In The Rough. After moving to Vermont, he played with Bob Yellin, and with Big Spike Bluegrass. Neil continues to teach, write and play music. His recent instruction book, “Learning To Fiddle, Bluegrass Style” received a rave review in Bluegrass Unlimited.
