I saw Ruth opening for Ane Brun and playing in her band. She played a great solo set. It is to be hoped she tours extensively to support the new record. Playing solo, acoustic, is sort of like playing naked. If you do it and don’t bore people it means you have good material.
Her music has hints of old school American country and gospel and also a bit of that 60s folk revival thing too. But it is new. It isn’t another tired tromp down memory lane.
