Ruth and Max Bloomquist have been making music together since they met in 1975 playing their first show together in a band named Amaryllis at Grand Rapids' Festival of the Arts in 1976. They soon discovered their shared love not only for each other, but for music and songs made with acoustic instruments and featuring lyrics from the heart. Ruth and Max immersed themselves in folk, bluegrass, country, singer songwriters, and other acoustic music to create a sound and style all their own.Ruth has earned her share of singing and songwriting awards over the years, often hailed by critics and publications across the country for her terrific alto vocals a voice rightly compared to the likes of Anne Murray and Kathy Mattea.The couple's most recent album, Turn Back a Page, soared to No. 5 on the Folk Radio Airplay Chart in 2010, thanks to tender, beautifully performed acoustic music with a traditional flair, as I put it in my review at the time.Now living in Norton Shores, south of Muskegon, the Bloomquists have since become veritable folk music legends in Michigan, captivating audiences with their songs, their harmonies and their folk-infused charm.
