In the Right Kind of Moody

There are probably not a whole lot of Australian-born singer-songwriters who have a couple of Juno Awards on their shelf, but Ruth Moody has. Largely known for her work with The Wailin’ Jennys, Ruth released her debut solo album, The Garden, in 2010. In 2013, she released These Wilder Things, featuring guest spots by Mark Knopfler, Jerry Douglas, Aoife O’Donovan, Mike McGoldrick and John McCusker. She has also been recognised by the USA Songwriting Competition and the International Songwriting Competition. The album features a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’. The Red Room, Ararat – February 25. * Ruth will also be appearing at the Port Fairy Folk Festival.
