Beth Duquette completes the trio with a rich alto that weaves through the music. All three members contribute lead and harmony vocals.They were selected for the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s 2009 Emerging Artist Showcase. Their CD “I Know Stories” was named Vermont’s Best Traditional Album of 2008. Ruane was a finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition, the Great Waters Music Festival Songwriter Contest and the Plowshares Coffeehouse Singer-Songwriter Competition. He was an award winner at the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest and the SolarFest Songwriter Showcase.

 Ruane’s songwriting has been compared at times to Richard Shindell, Richard Thompson and John Gorka. The sound of their harmonies has been compared to Richard and Linda Thompson.
