Ruthie Foster Returns to Liberty Hall May 13
This is Foster’s second time at Liberty Hall, prefaced by a sold out performance in 2015. Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel.
Her astonishing voice has taken her from humble church choir beginnings in rural Texas to a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band to now, ending up in Austin, TX.
Ruthie’s list of achievements include "Best Female Vocalist" in 2007, 2008 and 2013 from the Austin Music Awards; a 2012 and 2009 Grammy nomination for "Best Contemporary Blues Album;” the 2010 Living Blues Music Award Critic’s Poll for "Female Blues Artist of the Year;" and recent Blues Music Award wins for 2010 "Best Contemporary" and "Best Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year."
Foster's newest release, the career-defining soul/blues/gospel/rock opus, “Joy Comes Back,” was released on March 24.
Opening for Foster will be Tyler’s own Ramoth-Gilead.
