Although best known for her work with The Wailin’ Jennys, Ruth is an artist of exceptional depth and grace in her own right. Critics have lauded her ethereal vocals, impressive multi-instrumentalism, and insightful songwriting. Written with a maturity and wisdom that belies her age, her songs are timeless, universal, and exquisitely crafted, all sung with an intimacy and honesty that is unmistakably hers.

In 2010, Ruth released her first solo album, The Garden. Produced by David Travers-Smith, it was nominated for two Juno Awards, a Western Canadian Music Award and three Canadian Folk Music Awards. Its title track was the fourth most played song of 2010 on North American Folk Radio.

These Wilder Things, the highly anticipated follow-up to The Garden, was released in 2013 to rave reviews. Once again produced by Travers-Smith, it features guest appearances by Mark Knopfler, Jerry Douglas, Aoife O’Donovan, Mike McGoldrick, John McCusker, and The Wailin’ Jennys. It was nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards and a Western Canadian Music Award, and her cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’ was one of CBC Radio 2’s most played played songs of 2013. The release tour included a string of dates opening for Mark Knopfler in Europe, six of which were at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London. Ruth continues to tour worldwide with her all-star band in support of the new record.

The Ruth Moody Band features Adrian Dolan on fiddle, mandolin, viola, mandola and vocals; Adam Dobres on guitars, ukulele and vocals; and Sam Howard on upright bass and vocals.

Led by GRAMMY-nominated drummer Sammy Miller, this seven-piece band is on a mission, crisscrossing the country like a vaudevillian revival show with a fervor for music. The New York City-based familial collective performs with frenetic energy and unflinching optimism. Enjoy two chances to see this brassy band perform on October 7th, with two unique programs designed to get you dancing.

The band celebrates the hits from 1973! From getting it on with Marvin Gaye to the yellow brick road with Elton John, it was a year filled with such fabulous music that they feel it should be spelled out in full! That year also brought us Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, Stevie Wonder’s Innervisions, Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters and a long list that goes on and on.
