Ruut Returns to ThorpeWood

RuutFor the past several years, ThorpeWood’s Valentine’s tradition has been to bring you the extraordinary talents of Ruut in concert.  Many hearts have been delighted with this annual performance, and we always enjoy our time with this talented artist.

Guess what?  Ruut is coming back to ThorpeWood, but you don’t have to wait until February’s bitter cold to enjoy her!

That’s right – Ruut will be coming to ThorpeWood on Sunday, November 10th from 2-5 pm to play a special fundraiser concert.  Not only will we be treated to her amazing songwriting talents, angelic voice, and extraordinary skill on the ivories, but Ruut will also be accompanied by several talented musical friends.  At Baldwin Station, we recently heard Ruut perform many of her fabulous new songs off her new CD, “Glimpse” as well as some of her classics.  Ruut was accompanied by a bass and drummer (who also provided support vocals) …they were  outstanding – the accompaniment adding a refreshing twist to the traditional single artist format.  Click here to check out the sound yourself!

A fundraiser you ask?  What are the funds being used for?  We are glad you asked.  Like our recent, successful Trail Run, and our October 11th Barn Dance, the proceeds from this event will help to provide funding for Frederick County Nonprofit organizations’ use of our wonderful property and Equine Assisted Learning program.

So, let’s get down to basics.  Tickets are $20 a person; $10 if that person is under 15.  Light snacks and hot cider will be provided, and you are encouraged to BYOB.  The concert will be held in our Lodge.

To purchase tickets, send a check to ThorpeWood, 12805-A Mink Farm Road, Thurmont, Maryland 21788; call 301-271-2823; or email Beryl at [email protected].

Hope to see you there! You are not going to want to miss this performance.
