The soulful, Grammy Award-nominated musician, Ruthie Foster (USA) powers on to the Great Hall stage as part of Auckland Arts Festival 2013.

Armed with her phenomenal voice and accompanied by her rockin’ band, Foster will be singing songs from her 2012 album Let it Burn as well as the refreshing and revelatory reinterpretations of songs by artists as diverse as Adele, the Black Keys and Johnny Cash that she’s renowned for. When Foster was last in Auckland, she opened for BB King and scored a standing ovation from the packed-out crowd.

A vocal chameleon, Foster’s music blends Southern blues, folk roots, gospel, jazz and country. She is often compared to the legendary artists who inspired her, with the Philadelphia City Paper noting, “Ruthie’s drawn comparisons to Ella and Aretha, but musically neither is really close. What she does have in common with Fitzgerald and Franklin is the irresistible blaze. It’s impossible to look away, even close the eyes, for one second.”

Come along and welcome Ruthie for what promises to be a fantastic night.
