    Join us for this intimate, seated performance in The Rockwell’s Visions of America gallery.  Advance reservations required by 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 9th. 

    Mike & Ruthy are hard touring folk musicians from New York’s Hudson Valley. It doesn’t just mean that they play square dances on old, dusty instruments (which they do), it means they write about the times we live in using sturdy roots music as their bedrock. Buckle a couple kids in the backseat (check!) and you’ve got something that looks a lot like the American bohemian dream.

    As a duo encircled around one simple microphone they alternate between whisper-soft intimacy and rafter-raising hoedowns. Their latest record, Bright As You Can, is being hailed as one of the top Americana releases of the year (“One of the year’s standout Americana records” – Boston Globe) and their touring schedule reads like a who’s who of today’s scene (“In the vanguard of today’s vibrant folk revival”- PopMatters) including appearances with Ani DiFranco, Avett Brothers, Watkins Family Hour and The B-52s.
