RUTH GORDON is a multi-instrumentalist and lyricist who has toured across the UK and Europe. Immersed in the UK folk roots scene for all of her musical life, Ruth offers a new poetic twist on contemporary folk, with her own blend of the bizarre, the uncanny, the humorous, and the bittersweet.


For several years, Ruth performed, wrote, and recorded with folk group Cakes and Ale. She then joined old-time trio The Ninetree Stumblers, who dredge up long-forgotten songs and raw fiddle tunes from the Old Weird America. You can expect to see glimpses of both of these influences in her live performances.
