Ruthie Foster

Ruthie Foster

Three-time "Best Blues Album" Grammy nominee singer/guitarist Ruthie Foster of Austin Texas has dueted with Bonnie Raitt, performed  with the Allman Brothers, and shared the stage with Susan Tedeschi. She's the recipient of Seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics' Award for "Female Blues Artist of the Year."  

The Philadelphia City Paper writes of Foster, “The energy she brings with just voice and guitar is stunning. Ruthie's drawn comparisons to Ella and Aretha, but musically neither is really close. What she does have in common with Fitzgerald and Franklin is the irresistible blaze – it's impossible to look away, even close the eyes, for one second.” 

Tickets $15 general admission. Advance sales at http://aca.tix.com/ (no fees) and at door night of show (box office opens at 6:30 pm).
