" Ruth's musical expression captures what makes us fall in love with the hammered dulcimer!" - Dan Landrum, Editor, Dulcimer Players News

“ Ruth Smith's touch on the hammered dulcimer is absolutely magical, with exquisite phrasing, highlighting the range of the instrument especially on her own pieces." - Dirty Linen Folk & World Music Magazine"

"Ruth is one of the rarer exceptions in the dulcimer world. She plays with such feeling and expression. Her arrangements are a mirror of the emotion and personality that she puts into her music. When you hear her play you can visualize the setting she is portraying. A real touch of class.” - Rick Thum, nationally known hammered dulcimer artist and teacher
