Having honed her chops through decades of performances Ruth has blazed a trail for herself as an authentic Roots/Americana performer, songwriter, guitarist, and storyteller. Her songwriting is universal using a melting pot of styles with lyrics that are timeless, relatable, emotionally resonant, sometimes witty, sometimes serious but always human and genuine.
Ruth offers two types of soulful and engaging shows that always demonstrate her guitar virtuosity with powerful fingerpicking licks, bottleneck slide, and warm alto voice.
Ruth Wyand (without foot drums) Listening Rooms, House Concerts, Small Theatres. Just a few guitars and vocals with plenty of great stories, songs, and dynamic guitar playing.
Ruth Wyand & The Tribe Of One (with foot drums) Festivals, Theaters, Clubs) A one-woman band with a full set of foot drum accompaniment. No looping, drum machine or backing tracks - all hands, feet, and voice.
