Ruby by Robbie Schaefer feat. Jake Armerding and Rachael Davis
Ruby is the new solo album from Robbie Schaefer, featuring Jake Armerding (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) and Rachael Davis (vocals,banjo). Recorded over four days in a 19th-century stone farmhouse in Leesburg, VA, the album presents 10 new original songs, a whole lotta love, and at least one barking dog. Some of the songs on the album, including "No More Goodbyes", "By Your Side", and "Ring the Bell", have been performed in recent years by Robbie’s folk-rock alter ego, Eddie From Ohio, while others were still being written as they were recorded.
You can purchase Ruby at:robbieschaefer.com

10/10 - House Concert - Cleveland Oh
10/11 - Gopherwood Concerts - Cadillac MI
10/12 - Old Town School of Folk Music - Chicago IL
11/19 - San Francisco, CA

Nashville’s Rachael Davis brought a fantastic band featuring two horns, her husband Dominic on upright bass and Lynn Nichols on a Django-style acoustic guitar. This didn’t look like the ensemble from her most recent eclectic folk album, and indeed it was not. This was a new vision for her next recording, featuring original songs that ring like songbook standards with a swing jazz backing. The arrangement of opener “What’s Wrong With You” split the difference between classic New York and New Orleans. “Peregrine” had a Latin smoky bar groove and ended with an amazing high note from Rachael (she definitely has range). And in general, her vocals were as supple and commanding as her songs. This was retro yet revelatory. And for a set-closing encore, the band stepped off to let Rachael and her husband do a voice-plus-bass duo that stilled the room and then blew it up with applause. A true Roots discovery moment.
