Ruthie Foster is not a household name and I won’t pretend to know much about her or her body of work. I know her as a young blues singer and know that she musical roots that go deep into various church choirs.
This morning I was listening to Bluesville on XM radio and heard her version of the June Carter Cash hit Burning Ring of Fire. It’s quite different from the Johnny Cash classic but I liked it. The tune is on Foster’s new CD, Let it Burn.
