Yes, this is the exciting news we’ve been wanting to bring you
for a while -
a new Ruth Theodore album due out summer 2012!
We can’t give away too much just yet, but suffice to say there’s
a real sense of excitement bubbling away here at River Rat, having
been party to Ruth’s rehearsals and development process over the
last few months. With recording scheduled to begin in February,
we’ll be bringing you updates and behind-the-scenes glimpses of the
process. Be sure to keep in touch by
joining Ruth’s mailing list

Also very much hot off the press (i.e. yesterday),
Ruth has been confirmed as sole support for Grammy award
winning artist Ani DiFranco, for her two London shows at
Union Chapel, London,
on January 10th and 11th 2012. Tickets are available for the
tuesday and the
wednesday. Ani is in the UK to promote her new album
¿Which Side Are You On?, her first studio album in
three years. Very exciting!
And (almost) finally, an important date for your diaries; On
February 10th Ruth and the full band will be playing a special
show at King’s Place, London, as part of the Folk Union and Purpose
& Grace series’, sponsored by
fRoots Magazine. Be sure to
get your tickets and be the first to here brand new material
and arrangements from the forthcoming album.
If this wasn’t all exciting enough,
night Ruth and the band are playing a special intimate
Christmas show in Camden, London - again with a couple of glimpses
of new material! There are some
available so come down and join us for a cosy Xmas evening, in
part to celebrate
five years of River Rat Records!
That’s all for now (plenty I’m sure you’ll agree).. Have a Merry
Xmas and we hope to see you at a show soon.
