Folk Night: Georgia Ruth

  • The Gate Arts Centre Keppoch Street Cardiff, Wales, CF24 United Kingdom (map)

Georgia Ruth is a musician from Aberystwyth in West Wales. Her debut album Week of Pines won the Welsh Music Prize in 2013, and was nominated for two BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. She released her second album - Fossil Scale - in 2016. Demonstrating a departure in sound, it was praised by The Independent for its “wealth of sonic detail,”

In addition to her solo work, Georgia appeared as a guest vocalist on the Manic Street Preachers' Futurology album, and has toured extensively in India: both as a member of Ghazalaw (whose critically acclaimed record was released on Cerys Matthews' Marvels of the Universe label) and as part of the British Council's Folk Nations project.

She is currently working on a third record, promising a return to the harp-led arrangements of her debut.

“It could have been made in 1968, in the loveliest possible way” Independent on Sunday ****
“One of the British folk discoveries of the year” The Guardian
