The Mike + Ruthy Band

When: Fri., July 10, 8 p.m. 2015

We’ve long been fans of Woodstock, N.Y., Americana duo Mike + Ruthy, thanks in large part to their sweetly melodious blend of folk, rock, bluegrass and country. And we’re not the only ones. Hey, Anaïs Mitchell, what do you think? “Mike + Ruthy are a national treasure.” See? Now backed by a full band, the duo recently released a stirring new record, Bright as You Can, that’s drawing raves from everyone from PopMatters to the Washington Post and the Boston Globe — the last which called the record “One of the year’s standout Americana albums.” We agree, and so does Anaïs Mitchell. So you should probably go see them. Conveniently enough, the Mike + Ruthy Band play a string of Vermont dates this week: Wednesday, July 8, at the Middlebury Festival on the Green; Thursday, July 9, at Phantom in Waitsfield; Friday, July 10, at the Skinny Pancake in Burlington; and Sunday, July 12, at Twilight on the Tavern Lawn in Putney. Tell them Anaïs sent you.

Price: $5/10. AA
