Bob Ross


Born in North Wales, Bob spent his childhood in Llangollen where he miraculously qualified for grammar school at Chester. He was more interested in playing the double bass in jazz clubs than in learning anything and embarked on a series of dead-end jobs before marrying Barbara in 1968. With her help and support he became an enthusiastic restorer of old rural properties, notably the hill farm near Ruthin where sons Cai and Tobi were born and raised. Bob and Barbara then bought the derelict Goat back from the dead, before opening Paysanne in 1988.

Bob never stopped playing double bass and throughout the 1970s and early '80s, he played with The Merseysippi Jazz Band, doing four tours in California and recording three albums. He was also a thuggish rugby forward at local club level, whose less than mesmeric record of three tries in twelve years speaks for itself.

In 2003, Bob and Barbara moved to the French Midi region where he still plays with buildings, eats and drinks too much.
