Even this far ahead of the return of their popular Summer Hoot music festival this August, roots Americana couple nonpareil Mike & Ruthy have reason to do some hootin’ of their own. The West Hurley duo and their fourth album, the Mike & Ruthy Band’s Bright As You Can (Humble Abode Music/Thirty Tigers Records), which they’ll celebrate this Saturday with a show at the Bearsville Theater.

Featuring guest appearances by Amy Helm, Aoife O’Donovan (Crooked Still), Marco Benevento and Ruthy’s dad, Grammy-winning fiddler Jay Ungar, Bright As You Can is available in CD, digital download, and gatefold double LP formats. The 14-song collection has drawn advance accolades from many a media organ, including the Boston Globe, who called it “a joyful document of a band rounding a corner and into a wide-open field of possibilities.”

The Mike & Ruthy Band will perform with special guests Tracy Bonham, Happy Traum, and Adrien Reju at the Bearsville Theater in Bearsville, New York, on June 27 at 8pm. Tickets are $17.95. For more information, call (845) 679-4406 or visit http://bearsvilletheater.com/.
