If you were in Stewart Theatre on November 14, 2008, you won’t need convincing: a concert by Ruthie Foster is an unforgettable, take-your-breath-away experience. Many awards later, she is in the forefront of the blues/roots music world, and we’ve been eager to welcome her back to our stage. Ruthie Foster’s rich, robust, soulful voice draws repeated comparisons to Aretha Franklin and Ella Fitzgerald, but she’s a major force on her own. An extraordinarily gifted singer and songwriter from Texas, she mixes contemporary folk with old-school gospel and blues with dazzling efficiency.

 

Pre-show discussion with Darrell Stover, 7pm, Walnut Room. Darrell “SCIPOET” Stover is a cultural historian, bluesologist, poet and performance artist. He is known in our area for his work with the Bull Durham Blues Festival and the Page-Walker Arts & History Center in Cary. Currently, he is the Program Officer at the North Carolina Humanities Council.
