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 insightful songwriting and we're so pleased to have her perform at the Caravan. "I can't take her off my jukebox." --Mark Knopfler. With special guests: THE MAE TRIO
