Alive After Five with Hurricane Ruth Band featuring Scott Holt

July 26, 2019 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Hurricane Ruth LaMaster is a vocal powerhouse with a style all her own, blending the blues with rock and soul. Hurricane Ruth earned her name because no one believed that such a large sound could come out of such a small woman! A captivating performer, Ruth will grab your attention from note one and never let you go. The great Willie Dixon once told Ruth “You’re the only hurricane I can appreciate.” She has performed with Maynard Ferguson and his orchestra, Adrian Belew, and Louis Belson and has been a support act for John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, B. B. King, Taj Mahal, Ramsey Lewis Trio, Ronnie Baker Brooks, and more.

Scott Holt has been a frequent collaborator with Ruth, and he will be with the band for this performance. Scott performed with the Buddy Guy band for ten years before launching the Scott Holt Band and recording seven albums of his own.
