Ruth's music is steeped in both ancient traditions and modernist indie-folk. Her voice is trained and ethereal, unique and enchanting. She’s a multi-instrumentalist, but her focus and instrument of choice is the pedal harp. Her blend of Americana and chamber music was first heard on a pair of 2011/2012 EPs. Her shimmering 2013 album This is the Dream captures Acuff’s singular song craft and exquisite breeze-borne ballads, a sound that evokes organic earthiness and celestial atmospheres. With her 2014 EP release To the Moon she proves unusually adept at mingling the real and the surreal in a tribute to lost loved ones. For a listening session guaranteed to optimize your emotional wellness, Ruth Acuff (whose extended family includes country music legend Roy Acuff) brings her unique dreamscapes to take you to a place where you lose yourself, or if you prefer, find yourself. Ruth performs solo, as well as with upright bassist Jeff Mueller, and percussion and voices of Drew Lance and Mary Leibovich.
