Comments/further information

Setlist compiled by Bobbi Wisby

This was a Saturday afternoon show at 4:20pm on the Arlo stage at Kate Wolf Festival, the 'In The Round' series. Bruce and Ruthie had never played together before, yet it was apparent they shared some of the very same musical roots. Fantastic & fun! ~bobbi

One aspect of live music I have most enjoyed over the years/decades is when musicians play together. It is where and when great musical magic can happen. Such on-stage collaborations are one of the reasons I was psyched to attend the Kate Wolf Music Festival this weekend. It was the 25th and final year as a festival, held at Black Oak Ranch, the Mendocino home to the Hog Farm and Wavy Gravy's Camp Winnarainbow. Of all the collaborations I knew I'd see (some pre-arranged, some spontaneous), Ruthie Foster and Bruce Cockburn playing together was a high priority, and then a high point, of the festival.

During their "In The Round" set, Sister Ruthie and Brother Bruce (as Foster dubbed them) realized they had only met and played together once before - at a human rights benefit some many years ago. Not surprising, their styles melded together well for this all-too-short set (well done, Kate Wolf Festival peeps). No plan, no rehearsal, just two talents playing together. Here's how they ended the set. ~Tom Skeele -
