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.
The Ruth Moody band is:
Sam Howard- Upright Bass
Adrian Dolan- Violin, Viola, Mandolin and Mandola
Adam Dobres- Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Ukulele and Mandolin.
