Mike + Ruthy have refined their sound down to the very core of acoustic American music, demonstrating an uncommon ability to create songs as lyrically sophisticated as Bob Dylan and as harmonically beautiful as Gillian Welch. With their arsenal of fiddle, banjo, guitar, ukulele and their hallmark harmony singing, a Mike + Ruthy concert is overstuffed with soulful songs and stories and a timeless sound that is spellbinding and pure.
The Sea The Sea is spare beauty, bravely unadorned. This opening act was also this year's winners of the Kerrville New Folk competition.
**For the twelfth consecutive year the Outpost will help bring good cheer to some needy children in the community by collecting for the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program. Please consider bringing a new, unwrapped toy for a boy or a girl. (As a consequence of the destruction brought on by Hurricane Sandy, this year's need is even greater than normal!) An Outpost volunteer (or maybe even a live Marine) will get it to the Picatinny Arsenal Marines who will then distribute our collected toys prior to Christmas.
