Sonia Rutstein and her sister Cindy used to call themselves “Disappear Fear,” and when Cindy decided to stop touring, Sonia and her record label decided to keep the name. She sings traditional folksongs, new songs (written in English, Spanish, Hebrew, German, and even Arabic), and tours with her guitar, looping pedal, and harmonica. But some of her records have attracted a lot of great musicians. Her music is absolutely engaging.
One quote from her website sums things up nicely:
One voice, one guitar, bending sound and light into songs helping fans leap to their feet. “Her songs are a vivid celebration of the human spirit in all its infinite manifestations,” said Don Kening of the Chicago Daily Herald. “Her music has a singular sound that makes labeling and categorizing a waste of time.”
