Ruthie Foster's Picks

Ruthie Foster gave a list of five artists that she has listened to at the time of this interview:

Richland Woman Blues
“It was a gift to my percussionist Cyd and I ended up opening just yesterday. It’s a compilation of blues by some of the greats.”

The Gospel According to Austin
“The producer for that has been talking to me about putting another one together.”

Toshi Reagon
“She’s got a really great band, a four piece that she plays with. Her style’s a lot similar to mine. She’s a little bit of everything.”

Nina Simone
“We picked up a live CD at Half Price Books.”

Ellis Paul
“I went to go Ellis Paul playing in Fort Worth…Ellis is more of a folk singer.”
