Texas is filled with many incredible musicians and the competition is tough, and as the saying goes, “either you bring it, or you don’t.” With over twenty years of professional music experience, Ruthie Foster definitely brings it with every live performance and studio release.
Her delightful mix of blues, folk, and gospel stylings has garnered her comparisons to the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Susan Tedeschi, and even the soul powerhouse Aretha Franklin. She has shared the stage with many notable musicians spanning multiple genres, including the Allman Brothers when they were at the Beacon Theater in New York City, Susan Tedeschi, and many others. She has even been nominated for 3 Blues Grammy awards and won seven Blues Music Awards, 3 Austin Music Awards, and dozens of other accolades. All of her fans and hundreds of critics can’t all be wrong!
Ruthie Foster has eleven studio albums showcasing her beautiful vocals and brilliant guitar skills. Her latest offering, Joy Comes Back puts who right in a gospel church, fills you with happiness, and gives you a good dose of the blues we love. She even shows just how cool she is with a foot-stomping steel guitar cover of the Black Sabbath classic “War Pig.” Ruthie is a gem in the blues industry and warrants even more attention than she already receives.
Ruthie Foster has graciously accepted an invitation to Joe Bonamassa’s 5th annual Keeping The Blues Alive Cruise to Grand Cayman in 2019. This guitarmageddon on the open seas will feature many of the great blues acts of today including Walter Trout, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Samantha Fish, and of course the blues-rock titan himself, Joe Bonamassa. You won’t want to miss out on this one!
