Come to the Nathan Manilow Theatre to see the dynamic Ruthie Foster in concert March 8 and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!
Ruthie Foster can burn down any stage with her combustible blend of soul, blues, rock, folk and gospel. The small rural town of Gause, TX had no chance of keeping the vocal powerhouse to itself. The worship services at her community church and influences like Mavis Staples and Aretha Franklin created the foundation of her vocal capabilities which is unable to be contained within a single genre. There’s no denying the power of Foster’s monstrous voice –Paste Magazine
In the tightknit musical community of Austin, Texas, it’s tough to get away with posturing. You either bring it, or you don’t.
If you do, word gets around. And one day, you find yourself duetting with Bonnie Raitt, or standing onstage with the Allman Brothers at New York’s Beacon Theater and trading verses with Susan Tedeschi. You might even wind up getting nominated for a Best Blues Album Grammy — three times in a row. And those nominations would be in addition to your seven Blues Music Awards, three Austin Music Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque award from the Académie Charles-Cros in France, a Living Blues Critics’ Award for Female Blues Artist of the Year, and the title of an “inspiring American Artist” as a United States Artists 2018 Fellow.
