You may access the livestream on www.twowaystreet.org, on our Facebook page, or on our YouTube channel.
On Friday, November 18, 2022 Two Way Street Coffee House Friday Night Concert Series presents Ruth Wyand.
Being diversified is Ruth Wyand’s specialty. Demonstrating guitar virtuosity with powerful fingerpicking, bottleneck slide and a warm alto voice Ruth plays a mix of Americana, jazz, blues, folk, country with a portion of Piedmont picking and bluegrass clawhammer thrown in. Her songwriting is universal, using a melting pot of styles with lyrics that are timeless, relatable, emotionally resonant, sometimes witty, sometimes serious but always human and genuine.
Ruth presents a mixture of originals with poignant lyrics as well as well-crafted instrumental arrangements of classics ranging from Doc Watson, Etta Baker, Jimi Hendrix, Leo Kottke to Thelonious Monk and Nina Simone.
Each song, no matter how different, has a firm Ruth Wyand stamp of style on it.
If you can’t join us in person, you can still tune in virtually to catch the show! Make your donation HERE to Ruth. Visit www.twowaystreet.org for more information.
