Hi Ruth, Adrian, Adam & Sam,
Saw your performance tonight in Athens TN. What an unforgettable experience! Beautiful songs, wonderful vocals, superb musicianship. I'm a long time Wailin' Jennys fan, but the harmonies I heard tonight rivalled anything the Jennys have done. And eat your heart out Mark Knopfler, Adam's solo on 'Pockets' was better than the CD version! I'm so looking forward to seeing you all in concert again. Thank you for a truly memorable evening.

Hi Ruth and band. Thank you so much to you and the band for helping my wife Julie and I celebrate 19 years of marriage. It was an anniversary we will never forget, and much of that is thanks to your talent and a group of musicians whose only intent it seemed was to play amazing music, and debate Canada vs US superiority, :) . We were also deeply moved by Sam's vulnerability when he dedicated the last song to his grandmother. Thank you for trusting us with that moment and for an overall evening that left us awed and in love. We will be coming to a show again soon, no matter how far the drive. Be safe and be well,
Troy Cohrs

Hello Ruth,
It was great seeing you with your fellow Jennys last month at The Birchmere. As usual I thoroughly enjoyed myself and was very touched by your music. It looks like you'll be very busy the rest of this year between your dates with the Jennys as well as your dates with your own band. I know that you love performing but I'm sure it can be a little taxing at times. I'm looking forward to the day when your band comes close enough to my area because I know I'll really enjoy seeing you.
Take care and God bless you,
Joe Mrozek

Please visit Texas in 2015...Dallas-Ft. Worth-Austin. I know you are a fan of Emmylo's and so am I! You have a similar, yet unique quality. My favorite songs that I have heard you perform are Dancing in the Dark and accompaning Mark Knopfler on the beautiful song...Seattle (one of my favorites from Privateering). I will certainly buy a ticket when you book Texas and I am looking forward to your songs with Mark on his new album Tracker. Best regards...marcy

Ruth, I have been a big fan of yours for many years. I never get the courage to come up and see you after the shows, even when, like last night at Butchart Gardens, you invite us to do so. Oh well, I wanted to leave a note here anyway. I really appreciate your voice - one of the prettiest in the world, as well as the depth and spirit of your songs. I am somewhat of a song writer also and I wanted to give you a couple songs as a gift. They're ones I wrote (and even recorded) a few years ago but i think they are kinda your style and I'd love to hear you sing them. Do you have an email I can send them to and see what you think? Warmly, Cam

Just happen to find your music on iTunes radio and fell totally in love with your voice. Your music is spell-binding, great lyrics and beautiful sound. Hope you release more albums and keep going. You have a fantastic talent! My favorite song so far is "Cold Outside".

I heard you on the 40th anniversary edition of "A Prairie Home Companion," on National Public Radio with Garrison Keillor. What was the name of that beautiful song that you did? What album is it on?


Hi Michael. We performed One Voice and Bird Song. You can find One Voice on 40 Days or Live at the Mauch Chunk Opera House, and you can find Bird Song on Bright Morning Stars. Thanks for listening!

The These Wilder Things album is absolutely stunning! Gorgeous, moving! Please come to Seattle! [We'll see you on Dec 4 with the Jennys, but would love to attend a solo concert as well!
Thank you so much for this beautiful work!


Hi Max. I'll be in the Pacific NW in November - shows in Friday Harbour and Orcas Island.

I am listening to Life is Long as I study at home. Your amazing voice causes me to stop my studies, sit and listen. Thank you Ruth, now I just need for you to come to Knoxville, TN.

Hi Paul - Thanks for your note. I'll be touring through TN (shows in Nashville, Athens, and Pulaski) in October and hope to add a Knoxville show. I hope you can make a show!

Hi Ruth! Had the pleasure of discovering you and your fabulous music at the RAH when you opened for Mark Knopfler last year. I've been hooked on your music ever since. MK was right, "can't get you off the Jukebox!" Please hurry back to Europe!
Best wishes!

Absolutely loved your show here in Juneau. Have downloaded several songs that I listen to on morning walks. They are all good but especially like "Pockets" and "We can only Listen". Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful music with us.

The wife of my friend has a nice voice too, she is not famous... so hard to make a cd, and live from her talent.
i send u this song, let me know ur opinion abt her.

thx and bravo for all u do.

dear ruth-when i gave up the chance to see you at the pearl company in hamilton last spring to attend a course i was taking at the time, i figured it was a mistake. now i'm sure of it. Ive been a jennys fan for some time- now your 2 solo albums have me mesmerized. if and when you return to this part of the world, i won't make the same mistake again…promise.
ps can't believe you are not up for a juno for best album for these wilder things-be pulling for you and your producer for the production of dancing in the dark.
