Canadian born, of Scottish parentage, Ruth Sutherland moved to Hamilton in 1980 where she started singing jingles and doing studio work as a vocalist and harper, with Daniel Lanois at Grant Avenue Studio. Her solo career, which includes 3 award winning CDs, has seen her perform sold out shows with the Boris Brott Summer Music Festival, and has taken her to Lorient France where she performed (alongside harpers from Brittany, Ireland and Wales,) to rave reviews at the World’s largest celtic festival, in which she also led the harp master class. Ruth not only contributes her haunting Gaelic singing and traditional harp playing to Scantily Plaid, but her original songs as well.
