Mike and Ruthy Band at EOH: Bright As You Can!

Version 3The Earlville Opera House welcomes Americana standouts Mike + Ruthy with their new band on Friday, March 11th at 8 pm. Folks may remember their previous band The Mammals! Their concerts dance from Americana ho-downs to sassy blues, Motown soul, old-timey harmonies, rock-n-roll energy and infectious, inspired songwriting.

Their debut album, Bright as You Can, was released 9 months ago and top critics had this to say: “One of the year’s standout Americana albums” (Boston Globe), “In the vanguard of today’s vibrant folk revival” (Pop Matters), “honoring the great musical traditions of the past while at the same time welcoming, with open arms, the future of what music can be” (Folk Alley), and much, much more.


Mike + Ruthy Band with Jacob Silver, Konrad Meissner, Mike Merenda, Ruthy Ungar, and Charlie Rose

The Mike + Ruthy Band are Mike Merenda (vocals, guitar), Ruthy Ungar (vocals, fiddle, banjo), Jacob Silver (bass), Charlie Rose (pedal steel) and Konrad Meissner (drums). “They play with jubilation–as exciting and powerful as any quintet out there, mixing up fiddle and banjo with drums, bass, pedal steel and organ. Besides Ruth Ungar’s amazing voice, the lyrics on this album are incredibly thoughtful — they’re carefully crafted, without a word or phrase out of place. From rollicking good times to more tender reflections, Bright As You Can is a winner.” (Elena See)
