Ingrid Rosenback

Ingrid Rosenback raised her hand when her fourth grade teacher asked who wanted to take violin lessons, and the rest is history. When Banjoboy Jack Scott invited her to bring her violin and come and hear Whirled Peas play at Catherine Rooneyʼs, she found a chair and microphone waiting for her and her relationship as fiddler with the Peas began. For years Ingridʼs musical career took a back seat to her career in the sciences. She holds a degree in biology and worked with rats, mice and bugs for a while. Then she washed her hands and got a degree in pharmacy. Supervising one store after another got old, so at long last she returned to college to study with Helen Kwalwasser and receive a degree in violin performance at Temple University. Classically trained, Ingrid became a violin teacher. She has taught at the Suburban Music School in Media, and now teaches at Temple Music Prep, The Music School of Delaware, and in her home studio. Also musical are her daughter Miranda, violinist, son Eric, pianist and trumpeter and husband John, amateur harpsichord maker. Ingrid plays gigs with “Heartstrings Entertainment”, girl group “Just Roses”, is a founding member of the “Di Romani String Quartet” and jams in Swarthmore regularly. For years, she and John have hosted her “Candlelight Concert” series in their home, spotlighting talented musicians. Having been an orchestra and chamber music musician, she rarely did anything without reading the music. Then her friend Emil asked her to improvise on a bluesy rocking recording he was making and an unsuspected inner musician emerged. She presently fiddles every Wednesday night at Rooneys and exclaims “I donʼt know what I would do without the Peas!”
