Ruth & Ken emerged on to the folk scene with completely different lineups, Ruth having a successful Radio career and Ken in a highly acclaimed duo with Christine Collister. They joined forces 16 years ago in the widely acclaimed trio "Risky Business" with a combination of predominantly contemporary music and it was with great pleasure we saw them return as a duo after a short period of recuperation and personal development with a completely new repertoire.
Ruth is one of the finest singers in the country and was an absolute delight with a wide range of songs from Lennon & McCartney's I will to Mendocino about an idyllic place on the Pacific seaboard and from the magical (Going up the) The Winding Stair to The Tree by old friend Dave Walmisley. An equal partner in this music making, Ken, who is the maker of the finest acoustic instruments with many famous names enhancing their sound with one of his Smiley Face brand, was just enthralling with his brilliant technique, style, creativity and the sound of two of his own playing two of his own guitars.
Many people left asking when will they be back and how do I get one of those instruments. Enough said!!
