Gollagher Ross

Gollagher Ross are a Brisbane based ukulele / cello duo who perform a lively and eclectic blend of original and traditional roots music. Featuring a gorgeous combination of sparkling ukulele rhythms and virtuosic cello accompaniment, their recordings and live shows are punctuated by a unique cocktail of varied instrumentals and show stopping, powerful vocals.

The duo are regular feature artists at the Ukes @ the Winery Festival and were also recent performers at The Newcastle, Blue Mountains, and Sunshine Coast Ukulele Festivals. The music scene is nothing new to Trevor Gollagher (ukulele) and Elizabeth Ross (cello). Both long-time professional musicians, their creative partnership was born of happenstance; a casual conversation led to an exchange of ideas and the duo was formed in September of 2013.

Gollagher Ross

The union of cello and ukulele, though unusual, even improbable, has proved to be the defining characteristic of Gollagher Ross: the melody and strident rhythm of Trevor’s ukulele, with its bright, sweet highs being the perfect counterpoint to Elizabeth’s inventive cello playing, its luscious warmth and richness augmented by her steamy, passionate vocal delivery.
