Yani Batteau and Ruth Rappaport

Friday, April 7th, 2017 - 7pm

Yani Batteau is ..."Absolutely the real deal following the best in Traditional American folk and blue..." (The Boston blues society)

Yani plays the five string banjo, clawhammer style and sings in a rustic authentic voice. Her charismatic stage presence along with the soulfulness of Traditional music and her original tunes take you on a magical journey.

Ruth hits just the right note performing traditional tunes for a contemporary audience. She plays and sings with the authenticity that only comes with experience. - Thom Roach,Gore Place Music Series

Ruth Rappaport plays traditional American, Irish, and British Isles music. An excellent rhythm guitarist and pianist, she lays down the beat behind some of the best fiddlers, old-time string bands, and other traditional instrumentalists active today. Ruth shines as a vocalist with a repertoire that ranges from mountain ballads and gutsy blues to honky-tonk hits and old folk songs.

Raised in New York City by folk and country music enthusiasts, Ruth moved to upstate New York for college in the 1970s. Living in the Albany area, she began playing in coffeehouses and for contra dances. She worked for Bill and Andy Spence at Andy's Front Hall and recorded with Michael, McCreesh, and Campbell and John McCutcheon, among other artists. Since 1979 she has made Boston her home and has been involved in the old-time and Irish music scenes. For 15 years she traveled widely with the acclaimed eclectic string band, The Poodles. She now plays with The Hoot Owls, and with her husband and son, Joe Pete and Ben Wetherbee.
