Ruth's new recording is OUT!
ONCE AND FUTURE AMAZONS
"Moongiver" by Cedar Kindy (c) 1985
Once and Future Amazons is comprised of original and traditional folk songs, chants, and instrumental pieces celebrating the embodied power of women, goddesses, and the seasonal cycle of the Earth Mother. I will be recording some of my own original songs and chants, as well as several by other wonderful song and chant writers who have inspired me. I am excited to have musical settings for the chants in African, Middle Eastern, and Celtic rhythms.

Because of your support, I am so pleased to announce that my new recording, ONCE AND FUTURE AMAZONS, is available! Thank you to those who purchased your copy(s) in advance and/or made donations for this production. I could not have done this without you. Thank you for trusting my ability to bring something worth your trust into be-ing.
The entire process was filled with joy, reverence, humor, and creativity, when I personally really needed that. We completed the recording process at just the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. For the mixing part of the process, and the requirement to "shelter in place", Scott Fraser and I worked remotely to produce the pieces, with Scott at the helm of the computer.
I could not have imagined that this recording would get born into a world turned upside down.
I invite you to set aside a time to listen without distractions, perhaps with a good headset for a first listening. Take the journey. My hope is that this music will cheer you, heal you, comfort and lift your spirits to a place of knowing that what you love can never be truly diminished or taken from you. May this musical offering help you re-member the inherent power and beauty of women and Nature.
To those singers, musicians, and mentors who made the path easier for me, I give my love and gratitude to be standing on your shoulders. May my contribution inspire your own.
Dedicated in memory of my mother Florence, and to the memories of these wise and wild loved ones who have passed on – Sparky T. Rabbit, Brigit Silverbranch, Nora Cedarwind, Kay Gardner, Helen Farias, Shekhinah Mountainwater and Patricia Monaghan.
