Folksinger song-writer Ruth Hill has roots that run deep in the hills of New England. One of 10 children, she grew up in New Hampshire and started singing with her older brother and sister at church and community events when she was six years old. A musical storyteller, inspired by the gritty joy of growing up in a large, working-class family, and a wandering spirit that’s taken her to both poles of the globe, she writes songs about real people, her reflections on the sweetness and sorrow of the world around her. She accompanies herself expressively on guitar and banjo, but it’s when she opens her heart and sings from a place of depth and compassion that you are compelled to lean in closer. Her songs are a feather in the wind, a mason jar of moonshine, a spin on the Tilt-a-Whirl–exciting your imagination and opening the doors to your own heart.
Her latest CD, Reunion of Broken Parts, is currently # 8 in the Folk DJ charts.
