Singer-songwriter and producer Amber Rubarth brought her guitar, beautiful voice, and original songs to The Ranch for a mesmerizing week of folk music performances and creative workshops. She has shared the stage with such greats as Emmylou Harris, Richie Havens, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Kenny Loggins and Jason Mraz to name a few.
We’re excited to share two songs she performed while with us.
Rubarth’s eighth album ‘Wildflowers in the Graveyard’ explores life, death, and renewal in nature and relationships.
She is a Grand Prize winner of the NPR Mountain Stage song contest and made her acting debut starring in the ‘American Folk’ feature film alongside songwriter Joe Purdy.
Her list of accomplishments is longer than a guitar string. Rubarth’s film scores and compositions include Sundance Festival winner ‘Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work’ (with Paul Brill) and the award-winning documentary ‘Desert Runners.’ She also co-produced ‘Fantastic Fungi: Reimagine,’ a double album inspired by the documentary “Fantastic Fungi.
In 2016 she recorded a live-to-tape single microphone album with her folk trio ‘Applewood Road’, which the London Sunday Times gave 5 stars. She followed that with performances at Glastonbury Music Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, a UK tour supporting Mary Chapin Carpenter, and her original arrangement and performance featured in the ‘BBC Sisters in Country’ documentary with Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris. Rubarth is co-founder of The Paper Raincoat, a Brooklyn-based iTunes Indie Artist Spotlight band featured in Disney’s The Last Song, One Tree Hill, and Paste Magazine.
