Album Notes
I am guitarist and songwriter who also sings from Kill Devil Hills NC. Some of my influences are Etta Baker, Doc Watson, Rev Gary Davis, Lucinda Williams, Jimi Hendrix and Bonnie Raitt.

I was the first woman to win the Gamble Rogers Fingerstyle Guitar Competition in 2006.

This Christchurch, NZ reviewer said “With a feisty, fire and brimstone, JD-drenched and bleached by years on the road, Jannis Joplinesque voice matched by remarkably powerful fingerpicking on her guitars and a humorous stage personality layered with entertaining anecdotes of life on the road as a traveling musician. The first thing that strikes you when listening to Ruth is her powerful playing on guitar and resonator guitar…”

Very ripely guitar playing, remarkable on the road-blues, authentic voice. Good work.
