The Park City Institute is pleased to present renown singer Ruthie Foster. This exciting performance is slated for April 2 at The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Center for the Performing Arts.
Ruthie Foster is a gritty voiced vocalist who traverses many styles including soul, rock, folk, blues, and gospel. She draws her inspiration from her rural Texas church choir roots and a tour with the United States Navy Band. Most recently, she enjoyed the limelight as a Grammy nominee. She is also a four-time winner of the Blues Music Awards Best Traditional Female Artist of the Year. The New York Times says her sound is “long-suffering, forthright, resilient and thoroughly at home.”
Her brand of blues is rooted in a blend of genres and is a powerful representation of this musical styling. Paste magazine recently said about Foster: She is “a woman who can create a singular musical patchwork, cross-pollinating and matching what she sees beyond genre limits.”
While she did spend some time in New York City at a major record label, she found herself unwilling to fit into the pop genre of the city’s record industry. She returned to her native Texas, rediscovered her roots and went on to release seven records over the next 12 years. Along the way she earned three Grammy nominations and other blues industry awards.
Her live performances are highlighted by Foster’s dusky, velvety and always emotion voice that will certainly move people. According to Blues Revue, “Her voice has a Bonnie Raitt-like uniqueness that makes it impossible to ignore; and her smile and charismatic stage presence make you a willing participant in whatever story she wants to weave.”
The Eccles Center is located at 1750 Kearns Boulevard. Ticket prices range in price from $25 to $75. There are discounts available for both seniors and children. Summit County student pricing in the Copper section of the auditorium is available.
