Ruth has blazed a trail for herself as an authentic performer, songwriter, and storyteller. Her music reflects the true soul and origins of American Roots Music. With a rootsy approach to songwriting, her songs encompass a broad range of Americana, folk, blues, and jazz steeped in imagery and reality.
Demonstrating guitar virtuosity with powerful fingerpicking, bottleneck slide along with a warm alto voice Ruth presents a mix of originals with poignant lyrics as well as well-crafted instrumental arrangements of classics ranging from Doc Watson, Etta Baker, Miles Davis, Leo Kottke to Thelonious Monk.
Ruth is also a great storyteller - as she puts it "after 100 years of playing everywhere from biker bars, nudist colonies to haunted theaters in New Zealand, there isn't much I haven't seen”. And she'll tell you all about her sometimes hilarious, sometimes scary tales of life on the road. Ruth always presents a soulful and engaging show.
