Bach's "Partita in A minor"
Ruth discussed her various flute-related activities, here in Exeter and further afield. We heard recordings of her recent concert at Cullompton, and from last year's "One Flute Many Voices" at Lympstone. Ruth also played music live in the studio - on both her regular C-flute and the mighty alto flute. The show finished with an archive recording of Ruth and her old chum, former Exonian, James Keefe, who is now retained by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra as keyboard player and recently joined them on a tour or Europe.
Ruth, and her pals Sophie Brewer and Jen Campbell, will be in action again soon as "Flute Cake" performing "Flute Fancies" at Exmouth Festival on Wednesday 28th May (and possibly again in Sidmouth on the 29th). Ruth will also be joining David Cottam's "Eloquent Guitar" on Sunday 1st June. For full details of all Ruth's forthcoming concerts, find the website: ruthmolins.com.
Ruth's inaugural recorded radio programme is available to hear on 'Mixcloud'.
