About Ruthie Foster

Ascendant folk blues star Ruthie Foster is an artist to watch: on the strength of her record The Truth According to Ruthie Foster, she won a 2010 Blues Music Award and was nominated for a Grammy. One of Austin, TX’s finest musical exports in recent years, Foster blends gospel revival, blues and soul with lyrics that bleed and a voice that rings with joy.

As Foster’s star grows, her tours get bigger and the awards keep coming in. Recent awards include a 2013 Blues Music Award for Traditional Blues Female vocals, Female Blues Artist of the Year at the Living Blues awards, and Best Female Vocals at the Austin Music Awards.

This is a colossal talent with a huge voice and a joyful message.

Eric Bibb

About Eric Bibb

Eric Bibb has become a familiar face – and voice – in the U.S. and Europe. Nominated for nine Blues Music Awards and winner of the Best Newcomer title at the British Blues Awards, Bibb transcends the comparisons to Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal that abounded early on. Bibb’s rich and sensitive vocals and lyrics provide a perfect balance to his fine finger picking technique. Purveying a beautifully realized and deftly accomplished soulful folk-blues, Bibb has no problem blending various genres effortlessly, melding a traditional rootsy American style with a subtle, contemporary sensibility. His finger picking acoustic guitar playing and smooth, gentle and yet powerful voice simply drip with gospel and folk influences, yet he remains a bluesman through and through.

A performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience-both musically and spiritually. His music, like his personality, is intimate, assured and passionate.
