Editors Choice – Ruthie Foster

Ruthie Foster

By Nicole Wroten

The remarkable Ruthie Foster will be spreading her “Truth” in Springfield this Friday, Feb. 11 at the Clark State Performing Arts Center in support of her new CD, “The Truth According To Ruthie Foster.” On stage, as on her CD, Ruthie plans to take things up a notch or two (or three) with her fiery and unmistakable mix of folk, soul, blues, gospel, and R&B. Following the path of critical acclaim and artistic triumph blazed by her audaciously and appropriately titled 2007 breakthrough “The Phenomenal Ruthie Foster,” Ruthie’s new CD was recorded in Memphis. Raised in Gause, Texas, a small town 180 miles southeast of Dallas, Ruthie grew up surrounded by the rich, soulful sounds of gospel and blues. Her show is Feb. 11 at the Clark State PAC in downtown Springfield at 7:30 p.m. with a lobby pre-party at 6 p.m. Tickets are $20 and $25, 866.PAC.TKTS or visit pac.clarkstate.edu for more information.
