Ruth Moody – The Garden


An album that’s being on my playlist for the last couple of months is the The Garden by Australian born Ruth Moody who grew up in the Canadian Prairies in Manitoba and is probably best known as a founder member of the wonderful Wailin’ Jennys she has also fronted the Canadian band Scruj MacDuhk – later to become The Duhks and although she’s released solo material before (the Blue Muse EP in 2002) this is Ruth’s first full length album, the twelve track release features an all original set of tunes on which the multi-talented singer-songwriter also plays acoustic guitar, banjo, piano, ukulele and accordion, for the album she is joined by a host of talented players including the her long time collaborators from the Wailin’ Jenny’s Nicky Mehta and Heather Masse, as well as Luke Doucet (electric guitar, pedal steel and backing vocals), Colin Cripps (electric guitar), Oh Susanna (backing vocals) and Crooked Still, when you put all this together with Ruth’s beguiling vocal you have a great album.
