Before a concert in Charlottesville Sunday, March 24, Mike & Ruthy will stop by WTJU that same day around 1 for visit. This popular duo is currently touring behind their latest release, The New York City EP.
After thousands of concerts across tens-of-thousands of miles, Ruth Ungar & Mike Merenda have emerged as one of acoustic America’s most revered musical duos. As story-tellers, as singers, as poets and as parents (they tour with their two small children), Mike Ruthy are heralds of an American cultural awakening, one that values honesty and togetherness, one that prefers grit to glitz and one that - in the face of an information super-highway - revels in the old-fashioned telling of a story. Described as “rich, vintage Americana” by Time Out NY, Mike Ruthy’s 2012 Woody Guthrie collaboration “My New York City” is being hailed as one of the most gorgeous pieces ever to have come out of the archive.
