RUTHIE COLLINS AND MATT HODGES GIG – 18TH OCTOBER 2023

She’s touring with Matt Hodges, a singer songwriter from Wakefield who has been performing for over 10 years, his songs frequently hitting the number 1 spot on the iTunes country charts.
Ruthie started her music career in 2007 when she formed the country duo Wild Honey with Victoria Gordon. In 2011 she signed with Curb Records and released her debut self-titled EP in 2014. In 2016 she released her first album Get Drunk and Cry along with a short film. Most recently, she has released and album titled Cold Comfort, and toured it in 2021. The expanded version of the album, Cold Comfort +, was released last year.
Raised on a farm in Fredonia, New York, Ruthie blends the vulnerable, the volatile, and the serene in her music. Her songs fuse Americana, Bluegrass, and modern Country with vocals in the style of her icons Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris. Her music features some upright bass and traditional bluegrass instrumentation in a style that’s both old-fashioned and very modern.
