"Ruth is one of the rarer exceptions in the dulcimer world. She plays with such feeling and expression. Her arrangements are a mirror of the emotion and personality that she puts into her music. When you hear her play you can visualize the setting she is portraying. A real touch of class that anyone would be proud to emulate.”   
—Rick Thum
