Max & Ruth Bloomquist at Two Way Street
Please note, this event has expired.
After hearing Ruth and Max perform the Scott Wiseman standard, Remember Me, Garrison Keillor told Ruth, “You have a big voice… I’d like to sing that song with you.” And the next night he did!
Ruth and Max celebrate 40 years of performing their unique style of Acoustic Americana, with roots in Folk, Bluegrass, and traditional Country music. Ruth is acclaimed for her songwriting as well as her striking alto voice.
Ruth was a winner of Merlefest’s Chris Austin Song Writing Competition in 2003 with her gospel number, By The River.
The pair’s 2010 CD release, Turn Back a Page, reached No. 5 on the Folk DJ Airplay Chart with four songs in the top 100 for that year.
