“…veritable folk music legends in Michigan, captivating audiences with their songs, their harmonies and their folk-infused charm.” John Sinkevics, Jan. 6, 2012, The Grand Rapids Press


Ruth's award winning abilities as a songwriter and singer are accented by Max's harmony and touch on the upright bass . With influences of folk, bluegrass, and country, they have created a heart touching, audience pleasing acoustic Americana that is all their own. Ruth’s trademark rich alto is unmistakable, and her songs evoke images and emotions common to us all.
