Ruth Theodore – Album Launch + Alejandra Ribera
Known for her quirky, insightful, poetic lyrics and insidious melodies, RUTH THEODORE is so much more than a singer-songwriter. Her use of unconventional guitar techniques and unique tunings has thrilled listeners and dumbfounded peers since the release of her 2007 debut, ‘Worm Food’. This gig celebrates the launch of Ruth’s fourth solo album, ‘Cactacus’, which will be released in September on Aveline Records. The recording sessions saw Ruth crossing the Atlantic to collaborate with Todd Sickafoose, best known for his work with Ani DiFranco and recently produced two award-winning albums for Anais Mitchell. As Todd himself notes “Ruth writes alternative folk and blues music but at heart she is a pure punk San Franciscan beat poet”.
Support from ALEJANDRA RIBERA
Raised in Canada with an Argentinian father and a Scottish mother, Alejandra Ribera was born with the world in her genes. And the globe spins on ‘La Boca’, an album that soars a cloud floating above storms, its music that crossing musical continents and frontiers, from chanson to Latin to blues and the sharp, intense beauty of real pop. Her dreamer’s voice rises, light as gossamer but with a heart of passion. Her songs fly.
