As Ruth continues to perform on the local, provincial and national music scene, she feels fortunate to have teamed up with the extremely talented and very witty, Matt Day. The two performers have come together to create a show that is so versatile and humorous, they are unparalleled.
Graduating from Concordia University College of Alberta with a BA in Music in 1990, and adding a diploma in piano performance from Macewan University in 1992, Matt Day had set himself up for a successful career as a popular pianist in Edmonton. But when his 12-year contract with Fairmont as a jazz-trio pianist ended, Matt boldly expanded his musical services into the comedy, motivational speaking, and Emceeing arena — a move that is transforming the way corporations hire for entertainment.
Matt’s cohesive vision that encompasses all branches of his entertainment solutions is inspiring and connecting audiences, not only to himself but with each other.
