The first thing that comes to mind when you watch a performance by The Blue Ruins is there’s nothing ‘ruined’ about it! Contrary to their name they are on the rise. In a world of false idols and half-arsed music, they are a bluesy, rootsy and downright refreshing.
Singer/guitarist Kate Watts is a 23-year-old powerhouse; her voice and ability to hold a crowd is impressive for a lady her age, performing great blues tunes as well as original compositions, which like herself, hold an earthy and honest beauty. Kate is joined by her father Allan, the other half of The Blue
Ruins, and together they put on a hell of a good show. Father and daughter synergy, Tuesday at the Rails.
