Festival on the Green 2024: Bread & Bones


Bread and Bones is a harmony driven acoustics trio that plays original music with a strong traditional-roots foundation. Richard Ruane’s playing drives the songs whether he is playing guitar, ukulele or an octave mandolin. Mitch Barron joins in on fretless, fretted and upright basses and Beth Duquette completes the trio with her rich alto voice. Formed in 2003, the band toured and recorded for 10 years. They reunited in 2017 and have continued to play ever since, touring throughout New England and beyond. The trio has appeared at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, on Folkstage (WMFT, Chicago), Bound for Glory (WVBR, Ithaca, NY), Caffè Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY and many other venues. Bread and Bones has recorded two albums: “I Know Stories” in 2008, and ”Could Have been a Dream in 2011 and Richard has a solo record titled “Things That Strangers Say”.

​Recorded 7/9/24.
