It's beautiful when two people live and work together in harmony. Woodstock, NY's Mike + Ruthy have been touring and recording together for thirteen years and married for six, and the sound just keeps getting sweeter. Maybe it's their differences that make the whole thing work. Mike is an artfully prolific songwriter with an indie rock soul and feather-touch vocals. Ruthy is an earthy country-blues singer raised by folkies with the unmistakable stage presence of a natural-born performer. To Mike + Ruthy, music is not just a way of living, it's a way of experiencing life.
As a duo Mike + Ruthy have refined their sound down to the very core of acoustic American music, demonstrating an uncommon ability to create songs as lyrically sophisticated as Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen and as harmonically beautiful as Gillian Welch & David Rawlings or Simon & Garfunkel....
Their teamwork extends from songwriting and performing to recording and releasing their own albums on their small, independent label Humble Abode Music...

Mike + Ruthy are inextricably linked to the work of The Ashokan Center:
The Ashokan Center is an outdoor education center and conference/retreat facility located in the foothills of the Catskills in upstate New York, with hundreds of acres of trails, fields, forests, farmland and the magnificent Cathedral Gorge whose walls are a window through time taking you back nearly 400 million years.
Its mission is to provide a learning environment where schools, organizations, and people of all ages can re-connect with nature, history, farming, and the arts, and build community in a sheltered natural setting.
Ashokan has long been known as a place where people come to re-establish their connection with nature and with one another through shared experiences in outdoor education, living history and the arts. It is a timeless sanctuary where people find both new and ancient ways to connect with the beauty and values that much of our modern world has left behind.
