Ruby Hill to be Musical Guests at Museum Church

On Sunday, October 13th, Ruby Hill will be musical guests at the Museum Church.  Micki LePla, Ron McPhail and Jim WiLliams are three musicians who “would rather sing and harmonize than almost anything!”

Jim & Ron are also members of the acoustic quartet Lost Cuzzins; Micki has been performing as a lead singer in bands, as an actor and as choir director of her church.

The combination of folk-flavored instrumentation, precise harmonies and exquisite arrangements of old and new favorites inspired one listener to comment, “It’s like the sun comes out from the clouds when you play and sing!”

Their choice of songs is an eclectic blend including tunes by Claire Lynch, Alison Krauss, Bob Dylan, Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart (yes, that Rod Stewart!), as well as originals. 

The concert starts at 3:00 PM.  Admission is $10.  Light refreshments will be served at intermission.
