Austin Music Minute


Posted by on Jan 16, 2021

Go on and treat yourself to the effervescent energy of Ruthee Foster Big Band! Live at The Paramount. For longtime fans of the Austin artist, it has everything about Foster that shines, times ten, thanks in no small part to a band that shines right along with her. The live recording recently earned Foster a Grammy Award nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album.

Today’s AMM has a special pick for you, courtesy of Austin City Limits. Foster, an Austin Music Awards’ Texas Hall of Fame inductee, shares tonight’s ACL schedule with Nashville-based Southern soul duo The War and Treaty. The War and Treaty will perform tracks from their widely-acclaimed release Hearts Town, while Foster will play various songs spanning her musical career.

Catch Foster and The War and Treaty at 7 p.m. (Central) tonight, Saturday Jan. 16, on ACL, airing on Austin’s PBS station KLRU.
