Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

We are both on a tourist visa so can't work in The States but would be interested in any listening rooms, open mics and Radio shows along the way that will have us for free,I will also like to record and broadcast as many artists along the way for our Radio listeners and social media friends and followers.
About Ruth Purves Smith. www.ruthpurvessmith.com
Ruth’s childhood rambled the prairie highways between urban and country homes. Her mother, a cultured English teacher, lived in the city, and her father and stepmother operated an antique woolen mill in Rural Alberta. This paradox is apparent in Ruth’s music. While the stories may appear to be simple, traditional country, they are supported by a sound that pulls influence from the city: complicated, restless and sometimes loud.
The story of Ruth’s career is no different.
Having charted on CKUA's Yearly Top 100, garnered licensing to MTV, and gathered all rave reviews Internationally, Ruth Purves Smith is a gem of Central Alberta's Original Music Scene.
She is in full stride performing, writing, recording, & promoting her diverse brand of Alberta Music.Ruth will wander you through places & tales of darkness and light, as did the Bards of old and as we intend to do the same across America this spring.
