Americana stand-outs Mike + Ruthy have assembled a new band and, as was the case with their last one, The Mammals, fans and critics alike are showing a lot of love. Their debut album, Bright as You Can, was released last summer and the Boston Globe calls it, “One of the year’s standout Americana albums,” and Folk Alley praises it for, “honoring the great musical traditions of the past while at the same time welcoming, with open arms, the future of what music can be.” They call their sound “rural rock” and LA Weekly calls them, “Some of the best songwriters of their generation.”

 

Mike is a songwriting guitar-slinger with a knack for clawhammer banjo. Ruthy is a fiddler and uke-chanteuse who grew up in the American roots underground, the daughter of Grammy-winning fiddler, Jay Ungar. These two believe in the transformative power of a great live show. They write top-tier songs and charm audiences world-wide with an ease that might make you think they’re your new best friends. Of their own roots music festival the two founded in 2013, their late friend and mentor Pete Seeger wrote, “Dear Mike + Ruthy, Your Hoot was one of the best song-gatherings I’ve seen in all my 94 years. I hope next year I can be there for more than one day.”
