Grammy nominee Ruthie Foster comes through East Texas

GRAMMY nominee, 2019 US Artist Fellowship Award recipient, seven-time Blues Music Award winner, and three-time Austin Music Award recipient, guitarist and singer Ruthie Foster is headed to two East Texas stages this April!

Those who have followed Ruthie Foster’s eclectic musical history know that she can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. Her astonishing voice has taken her from humble church choir beginnings in rural Texas to a tour of duty with the U.S. Navy Band to now, ending up in Austin, TX.

Ruthie’s further achievements include “Best Female Vocalist” in 2007, 2008 and 2013 from the Austin Music Awards; a 2012 and 2009 Grammy nomination for “Best Contemporary Blues Album;” the 2010 Living Blues Music Award Critic’s Poll for “Female Blues Artist of the Year;” and recent Blues Music Award wins for 2010 “Best Contemporary” and “Best Traditional Blues Female Artist of the Year.”

You can see Ruthie Foster on Saturday, April 1st, at 7:30 pm at Memorial City Hall in Marshall. Tickets can be purchased online here. Prices range from $30-$40.

On Saturday, April 22 at 7:00 pm, Liberty Hall, in Tyler, is bringing Ruthie Foster back to the stage. Tickets are available online here. Tickets range from $24 to $36. VIP Boxes (seats four) are available for $180. The show will begin at 7 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m.
