Ruth Notman is an 19 year old singer and songwriter from Nottingham. In 2006 she reached the finals of the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards and since then she hasn't looked back./>
Ruth has toured extensively across the UK, and her glittering performance at Towersey Village Festival (Oxfordshire) bought her to the attention of many new fans and fellow artists alike. Ruth has also been hard at work in the studio recording her stunning debut album – Threads.
2008 will see Ruth perform at Cambridge Folk Festival, Fylde Festival, The Larmer Tree festival, Wath Festival, Saul Canal Festival and many others.
Threads combines traditional material and unique covers with Ruth's own beautifully crafted songs. Ruth's pure and powerful voice, quirky piano melodies and delicate guitar riffs are accompanied on the album by driving rhythms on melodeon from Saul Rose (Whapweasel, Waterson:Carthy), cello from Hannah Edmonds, fiddle from Roger Wilson and harmonies from Bella Hardy.
"Threads is a stunning piece of work. My favourite cd of the moment. I have been playing it over and over again".
Mike Harding BBC Radio 2
