Ro Colegrove is a queer and transgender singer/songwriter who has been in a serious relationship with music for over a decade.  He plays for his wonderful partner, his dear friends, and whoever else will listen in living rooms and clubs across New England.  His quiet voice soothes the heart and nourishes the mind in whispered tones that can bring out tenderness in anyone.  One of Ro's dear friends once told him that the place he writes from is one of the purest innocence.  His writing brings to life the narratives of the humblest people. 

Ro has performed at the legendary Club Passim (Cambridge, MA), Tupelo Music Hall (Londonderry, NH), and The Vanilla Bean (Pomfret, CT).  He has opened for many accomplished acts including Meg Hutchinson, Vance Gilbert, Edie Carey, and Anne Heaton. He has also shared the stage with folks like Rose Polenzani, Nicole Reynolds, Melissa Ferrick, and Lucy Wainright Roche.  He was the recipient of an Iguana Grant from Club Passim in 2008, a grant that awards approximately $45,000 in grants to independent musicians across New England every year.  He was a 2016 Kerrville New Folk Finalist. 

He knows that his adoration for crafting songs will never die, and he cannot wait to see what lies ahead.
