Peggy Ratusz · 7:30PM
Austin, Texas transplant, Peggy Ratusz has been pulling from the cream of the Asheville music crop since moving here in 2002. This “ruby throated” chanteuse has been a finalist in the International Blues Challenge in 2008, 2010 and 2016. Voted Blues in Blues for 3 years in a row and winner in three categories in the 2016 (Best Vocalist, Best in Blues and Artist Who Gives Back), she’s opened for Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Geoff Atchison, Karen Lovely, Taj Mahal, and the Beach Boys.
You’ll find this matriarch behind the scenes a well. She writes a monthly “Women Making Music” column in WNC Woman magazine and is a vocal coach to students who range from novice to professional. Playin’ it forward is her motto as evidenced by her many collaborative and philanthropic productions over the past 15 years, which benefit local musicians and local charities
