Ruth's music is steeped in both ancient traditions and modernist indie-folk. Her voice is trained and ethereal, unique and enchanting.
She’s a multi-instrumentalist, but her focus and instrument of choice is the pedal harp. Her blend of Americana and chamber music was first heard on a pair of 2011/2012 EPs. Her shimmering 2013 album This is the Dream captures Acuff’s singular songcraft and exquisite breeze-borne ballads, a sound that evokes organic earthiness and celestial atmospheres. With her 2014 EP release To the Moon she proves unusually adept at mingling the real and the surreal in a tribute to lost loved ones. For a listening session guaranteed to optimize your emotional wellness, Ruth Acuff (whose extended family includes country music legend Roy Acuff) brings her unique dreamscapes to take you to a place where you lose yourself, or if you prefer, find yourself.
