CD Turn Back A Page - 2010 Top 40 Album in Folk Radio.

CD Cover: Turn Back A Page

“Real songs with real emotions, great instrumental work, superb harmonies and one of the best female vocalists in the business. This CD is pure listening pleasure." - Al Kniola, Host, The Back Porch, 88.1 WVPE Public Radio.

Turn Back A Page, the fourth independent recording project from long-time performers, Ruth and Max Bloomquist, is a collection of 12 of Ruth’s newest songs produced with acoustic instruments only. Ruth and Max play guitar and bass, respectively. Ruth handles all of the lead vocals with Max singing the bulk of the harmony. Featured guest musicians include frequent stage mates John King (b-bender guitar) and Dan Seabolt (fiddle) with special guest Jeff Rose (mandolin) and co-producer Scott Zylstra (guitars). David Habetler lends his 12-string guitar sound to one track, and Lansing area musician Cindy Morgan plays concertina on another. Additional harmony is supplied by Theresa Smith and by Ruth herself.
A few of the Ruth penned songs included on the disc are: Michigan Girl, Ruth’s love song to her home state; Daddy Was An Old Man, the true story of a friend born when his father was 58 years old; gospel song Bathe Me In The Water; and Ruth’s memorial to John Denver, I’ll Remember John.
