Com­ing to San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty The­atre on Sun­day, July 14 at 7:30 pm, it’s the Ruth Moody Band

Ruth Moody is a two-time Juno Award win­ning singer-song­writer from Win­nipeg, Man­i­to­ba. Found­ing mem­ber of the inter­na­tion­al­ly renowned, Bill­board-chart­ing trio The Wailin’ Jen­nys, she has per­formed in sold-out venues around the world, made numer­ous crit­i­cal­ly-acclaimed albums, received five Juno Award nom­i­na­tions, and has appeared more than a dozen times on the Amer­i­can nation­al radio show A Prairie Home Companion.

Although best known for her work with The Wailin’ Jen­nys, Ruth is an artist of excep­tion­al depth and grace in her own right. Crit­ics have laud­ed her ethe­re­al vocals, impres­sive mul­ti-instru­men­tal­ism, and her tal­ent as a song­writer. Writ­ten with a matu­ri­ty and wis­dom that belies her age, her songs are time­less, uni­ver­sal, and care­ful­ly craft­ed, all sung with an inti­ma­cy and hon­esty that is unmis­tak­ably her own.

Ruth has been rec­og­nized by the USA Song­writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion and the Inter­na­tion­al Song­writ­ing Com­pe­ti­tion for sev­er­al of her com­po­si­tions, includ­ing ‘One Voice’, which has gone on to be a sig­na­ture song for The Wailin’ Jen­nys. It has been cov­ered by count­less artists and sung in con­cert halls, church­es and schools through­out the world. Her song ‘Storm Comin’’, from the Jen­nys’ lat­est album Bright Morn­ing Stars, won first place in the gospel cat­e­go­ry at the Inter­na­tion­al Song­writ­ing Competition.

Adam Dobres- Acoustic Gui­tar, Elec­tric Gui­tar, Ukulele and Mandolin.
