Georgia Ruth Williams http://georgiaruthmusic.tumblr.com/Growing in west Wales, singer and harpist Georgia Ruth became accustomed to sea mists and strange sounds. Having performed her hybrid of folk and blues at Sŵn Fesival, Greenman Festival and at HMV’s Next Big Thing Festival, she has opened shows for artists such as Damien Jurado, Sweet Billy Pilgrim and Seth Lakeman. In 2011, her version of oldAppalachian song, ‘Old Blue’, was chosen by Bethan Elfyn as ‘MPFree of the Day’ on the 6 Music Morning Show.
Now, aged 23, she presents a new and original collection of songs. Recorded and produced by David Wrench in the winter- stillness of Snowdonia’s Bryn Derwen Studios, the ‘In Luna’ EP is released on 10" vinyl on 20 February 2012 (Gwymon Records).
