John Palmer & Wendy Ross


An atmospheric and energetic folk rock duo, Jon & Wendy are part of the Jon Palmer Band which is described as a cross between The Pogues and Bruce Springsteen’s Seeger Session Band with a bit of Waterboys and Saw Doctors thrown in for good measure.

Leeds Music Scene said the Jon Palmer Acoustic Band left them ‘spellbound and desperate for more!’

Jon is a former winner of the Grolsch UK Songwriter of the Year, and a published songwriter with Sony.
