“Ruth’s ability to empathize with the characters in her songs is extraordinary. Her songs are amazing! I love her delivery, her guitar playing and her intensity.”
— Catie Curtis
Folksinger/songwriter Ruth Hill is a musical storyteller inspired by the gritty joy of growing up in a large, working-class New England family. Her wandering spirit has taken her from Antarctica to Bhutan to Alaska with warmer stops in between. She writes songs about real people, real events and her reflections on the sweetness and sorrow of the world around her.
Ruth has studied songwriting with many wonderful songwriters including, Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls), Mary Gauthier, Catie Curtis, Kate Cambell, and Grammy award-winning songwriters Don Henry and Gretchen Peters.
Ruth was the Grand Prize Winner of the 2017 Great American Song Contest. She also won first prize at the Maine Songwriter’s Association song contest in 2016. Ruth’s 2nd CD, Reunion Of Broken Parts, was released in the fall of 2017 and was on the Folk DJ charts for Jan, Feb, and Mar of 2018!
