From houses of worship to houses of blues, Ruthie Foster has always been a rafter-rattler. And with a soul-filled voice honed in Texas churches, she can move audiences to tears or ecstasy – sometimes in a single song. Her two albums, 2009’s The Truth According to Ruthie Fosterand 2012’s Let It Burn, moved the Recording Academy to deliver Best Blues Album Grammy nominations. Her latest release, Promise of a Brand New Day on Blue Corn Music, earned her a third Grammy nod in 2015. Ruthie performed at the Big Top twice before, blowing the roof off the tent with her amazingly soulful voice and blues artistry.
Room 2 Groove takes inspiration from Michael Franti, Citizen Cope, Bob Marley, and Peter Tosh to name a few. They proclaim their mission is to make the world, and specifically Northern Wisconsin, a more vibrant place to live by playing positive music that gets people up and dancing.
