Ruthie Foster – a Bluesfest favourite is returning this time with her full band!

“Fosters voice is simply drop-dead gorgeous, and her ability to wrap it around any musical genre – blues, jazz, folk, funk, soul – she chooses just makes it that much more spell-binding.” – Elmore Magazine

“The power of Ruthie Foster’s voice carries the music, rather than vice versa. It is a voice that was raised in the church that has the power of that true soul singing that comes right out of the tradition that bred such voices as Mavis Staples, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, and James Brown.”- Dirty Linen

“I love Ruthie Foster. That’s my little sister. A phenomenal woman, yes indeed.” – Mavis Staples

“Music this moving doesn’t come around often these days…” – Sonic Boomers

Soulful diva Ruthie Foster’s astonishing voice has taken her on an amazing ride! On Let It Burn, Ruthie’s latest release, she takes the listener on her most personal journey yet. Her deeply soulful vocals create a spiritual soundscape that smoulders, sizzles and ignites.

Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel.
