Sunrise Ranch begins its Concert Series Under the Dome with Grammy nominee Ruthie Foster, Saturday, April 2, 2011. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 7:00 p.m.

Foster will perform an acoustic concert featuring songs from her Grammy nominated CD, The Truth According to Ruthie Foster. “Foster’s deeply soulful vocals dip into gospel and swing toward contemporary folk with R&B panache. When she sings a cappella, the heavens part,” according to The Austin Chronicle. “Foster is a natural-born singer with a voice that is potent, unfussy and…deeply moving,” according to The Boston Globe.

Foster's special guest is Liz Barnez, who has shared the stage with Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, Patty Larkin, Dave Mason and others. She has performed at such prestigious events as the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, New Orleans French Quarter Festival, Nashville’s Bluebird Café, Lyons Folks Festival, and Fort Collins New West Festival. Barnez, influenced from growing up in the French Quarter, mixes funk with gospel, soul and Dixieland music to create "acoustic swamp-rock."
