Weekend Watch: Peter ‘Madcat’ RuthPeter ‘Madcat’ Ruth
It’s a few months before Charlie Musselwhite comes to town, but if you’re huffing and puffing for some blues harmonica, come see and hear Peter “Madcat” Ruth blow Saturday night at the Spirit Room, 111 Broadway, Fargo. The Grammy-winning harp player mixes up styles from blues, jazz and folk, wailing as part of the Listening Room series. The musician turns teacher earlier in the day with harmonica and ukulele workshops at 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Tickets for the concert are $10, $15 for either workshop or $20 for a workshop and concert.
