Spotlight: Ruthie Foster 

RUTHIE FOSTER

At 6:15 and 9 p.m. March 24; at 4:15 and 7 p.m. March 25/Morris Center

All these are joint performances by the Campbell Brothers, a "sacred steel" group, playing slinky and smoky R&B-fueled Pentecostal gospel music, and the incredible blues/gospel vocalist Ruthie Foster. With a strong, powerful and incredibly nuanced voice - a sort of Bonnie Raitt meets Roberta Flack, crossed with a little Susan Tedeschi and a dash of Anita Baker - Foster appeared at the 2010 Savannah Music Festival, where she bewitched the Morris Center audiences. That year, at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, Foster was named Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year.
