Joining us in the tasting room, Friday, June 1st, is an eclectic band based out of Colorado Springs, Roma Ransom. While busking on the streets of Missouri one night, Grace ran into Gordon and they began performing together. Since that night, they have performed together across the United States. Capable of playing any genre imaginable, Ransom Roma is best described as eclectic bohemian world psych folk music.
Great music should do three things- connect you to the past, inspire you to envision the future, and find you wholly in the present moment. Roma Ransom does all three. Their repetoire includes old-time traditional ballads like Shady Grove and St.James Infirmary as well as sounds from European cultures, mainly that of Romania (hence the duo's name) yet the music of Roma Ransom is distinctly their own. The sultry sweetness of Grace Easley on vocals paired with the couples' vast instrumental array combine to form a style that can fit the mood for any setting. The couple was trained classically from an early age, (Grace on violin/viola, Gordon on guitar) making them an excellent choice for weddings and banquets in addition to their usual venues, namely restaurants, coffee shops and pubs.
