Ruth Wyand has achieved a level of diversity that has exceeded the expectations of audiences around the world. Her guitar virtuosity is demonstrated by dynamic fingerpicking, bottleneck slide and a warm alto voice. She plays a mix of Americana, jazz, blues, folk, country augmented by Piedmont and bluegrass clawhammer fingerpicking. Playing well-craftedinstrumental arrangements of classics ranging from Doc Watson, Etta Baker, JimiHendrix, Leo Kottke to Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington and Nina Simone, each song, no matter how different has a firm Ruth Wyand stamp of style on it.

Her songwriting is universal, timeless, relatable, emotionally resonant, sometimes witty, sometimes serious but always human and genuine.
