Locals at the Lunder Center: Ruth Garbus with Julia Tadlock

Friday, August 26, 2022

6:00 PM–7:15 PM
Lunder Center's Moltz Terrace
Songwriter and improviser Ruth Garbus from Brattleboro, Vermont shares the stage with Southern Vermont native Julia Tadlock in this free outdoor performance on the Lunder Center's Moltz Terrace. Their performance marks the second show in the Clark Art Institute's Locals at the Lunder Center series, a new concert program featuring live music by local musicians.

Ruth Garbus is known for her resonant voice and rhythmic guitar. Her music’s sparse, skewed harmonies, sometimes sung by Tadlock, lilt throughout her sound. Garbus has released five solo recordings (2019’s Kleinmeister LP; 2010's Rendezvous with Rama LP; and the EP’s Ruthie's Requests, Joule EP, and Hello Everybody). Her work has been released on Orindal Records, Feeding Tube Records, Autumn Records, Burger Records, and OSR Tapes. Kleinmeister, her latest album, is infused with the green hills, grey cemeteries, and plastic detritus of her Brattleboro, Vermont home.
“To me her songs reaffirm the power of music itself and its basic elements - big and small intervals placed just so in time, the play of sound and meaning in words, parts put together without force or artifice. Ruth is one of my favorite singer-songwriters ever.” — Chris Cohen
