Aho is delighted to invite you to a very intimate and special gathering, where we will be joined by the enchanting, ethereal songstress Ruth Blake for a beautiful concert. As Ruth's improvised birthday concert medley last year was so much fun, she has decided to come back and do it again! Aho welcomes you to join Ruth and enjoy and share the experience.
The evening will weave organically through a combination of musical delights, including:
- Uniting and uplifting our hearts through the transcendental power of singing together. All songs will be taught by ear using simple call and response. You do not have to be an expert singer, only to have the willingness to show up and give it a go! And if you really don't want to sing, come anyway and receive the beautiful music of the group...
- A vocal sound bath - using her loop pedal and voice, Ruth will take you on a deep cosmic journey into the mysteries of the soul...
- A concert! Lots of songs - old and new - straight from Ruth's heart to yours. You will be invited to lie back and receive or stand up and shake your bums as appropriate!
About Ruth Blake:
Ruth carries her audiences on powerful wings across lyrical skies, through ever-changing landscapes that prize open our hearts, connecting us to our most intimate pains and joys. In one moment simple, hypnotic guitar riffs, crystalline vocal melodies and subtle harmonies lead us open-eyed into the mystery; at another her wild spirit calls our human community to unite with rousing lyrics for this time in history.
Having worked in ceremonial contexts as a medicine-musician and space-holder, Ruth weaves her music with a simple loving presence to assist people to drop into their hearts and access the deeper truths of their own hearts' wisdom. A fierce advocate for self-knowledge, authenticity, and the dissolution of hierarchy, she is increasingly working to help people explore and heal their relationship with their own voices, creativity and self expression.
