Ida Jo 


Madison, Wisconsin resident Ida Jo began setting herself apart long ago. A violinist since the age of 7, her childhood was filled with countless performances on three continents and awards such as the prestigious Emerson Scholarship to Interlochen Arts Camp. Ida Jo graduated college with a degree in violin performance and has since released four full-length records and maintains a consistent touring schedule in support of them.
