Add to Calendar 08-02-2014 08-02-2014 15 Thanks for the Joy-Ruthie Foster & Eric Bibb Longtime friends and collaborators, Ruthie Foster and Eric Bibb, join forces to celebrate a night of joyful roots music. Performing on their own and together, the tour title, Thanks for the Joy, is drawn from a song written by Eric and performed by Ruthie. Grammy nominee Ruthie Foster is one of the roots music world's brightest stars. Her latest CD Let It Burn debuted earlier this year on three Billboard charts (Blues, Heatseekers, Top 200) with the Los Angeles Times proclaiming, "to call Ruthie Foster a blues singer is to miss a big chunk of her allure as a vocal stylist, one who draws from a range of influences on her deep, soulful Let It Burn." On the album, Ruthie adds inventive interpretations to songs by Adele, Black Keys, Los Lobos, Johnny Cash and more. Ruthie was also among the most-honored artists at the 2012 Blues Music Awards with 3 nominations including 2 wins: for B.B. King Entertainer of the Year, Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year (winner) and DVD of the Year for her Live At Antone's DVD (winner). She's appeared at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Monterey and North Sea Jazz Festivals and many more of the world's most prestigious events as well as being featured on national programs such as Austin City Limits, All Things Considered and NPR's Weekend Edition. Ruthie Foster is a powerful performer who always makes an emotional impact on her audiences. Eric Bibb is a Grammy nominee and 2012 Blues Music Award winner. As the godson of Paul Robeson, the nephew of John Lewis, and the son of Leon Bibb, Eric Bibb was raised in an environment where music was crucial. He brings that same intensity, along with what the Dayton Daily News calls "grace, elegance and gentleness," to the concert stage as a mature and increasingly popular performer. Touring prestigious venues and festivals round the world, a performance by Eric Bibb is an enriching experience, both musically and spiritually. His music, like his personality, is intimate, assured, and passionate. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=154060 Landmark on Main Street true DD/MM/YYYY
