Ruth and Sadie Price
Ruth and Sadie were brought up in Dewsbury West Yorkshire and have both been heavily influenced by traditional song from a very early age. They sing mainly unaccompanied songs from a wide repertoire, which includes: songs from their family tradition and West Yorkshire; songs which they have learned from the family's associations with North America (Ruth was born in Canada); and some contemporary stuff. Ruth provides the occasional concertina accompaniment.
Over a number of years Ruth and Sadie have attended many English folk festivals. They are both heavily involved with morris dancing, and have sung in pubs and folk clubs whilst at festivals. For the past few years their spine tingling sibling harmonies have become increasingly in demand at folk clubs, and festivals.
Their Father was Bill Price from Dewsbury who was very popular in the folk scene in the 1970's and they sing a number of his songs, some of which their Mum, Wendy wrote the tunes for.
Ruth and Sadie's voices and harmonies are exemplary, they are superb exponents of quality singing.
Ruth is a versatile singer who also performs on her own, in the three part harmony group 'hex' with Terry & Linda Dix, and with 'She Shanties' a women's shanty crew.
