Ida Jo is a singer, violinist and writer. Born and raised in the Midwest, Ida Jo’s musical style builds on a long history of blending rock, folk, and gospel music. Her songs are carefully crafted, meant to get at the heart of the humanity that connects us all. A violinist from a young age, Ida Jo employs a seldom heard technique that is the combination of a folk fiddle style called “chopping” and her extensive classical training. She’s been named WAMI Female Vocalist of the Year and MAMA Folk/Americana Performer of the Year.
