Ruthie Foster
With a Big Band

Ruthie Foster is excited to announce that she will be performing her show with a big band. Led by UT Professor John Mills, the band will accompany Ruthie on some of her best-loved songs as well as debuting two Allman Brothers Band classics from a forthcoming project which will include Ruthie.

In the tightknit musical community of Austin, Texas, it’s tough to get away with posturing. You either bring it, or you don’t.

If you do, word gets around. And one day, you find yourself duetting with Bonnie Raitt, or standing onstage with the Allman Brothers Band at New York’s Beacon Theater and trading verses with Susan Tedeschi. You might even wind up getting nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy — three times in a row. And those nominations would be in addition to your seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, and a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year.

There’s only one Austinite with that résumé: Ruthie Foster.

Last time she played the Paramount was for a near-capacity crowd at her last album release show. We can’t wait to see what she has in store for us this time.
