Ruth Moody, born in Australia and raised in Canada, was in Ireland in May 2008 with the Wailin’ Jennys (see the BIB for 14 Mar. 2008), of which she is a founder member. She is also former lead singer of the Canadian roots band Scruj MacDuhk (which became the Duhks, and begat the Turtle Duhks, who played at this year's Omagh festival), and she has appeared many times on the radio show 'A Prairie Home Companion'.
