Ruthe Kay began entering music competitions at the age of 10. She quickly drew attention for her powerful-beyond-her-years voice and, through regular visits to open stages in the Twin Cities, has connected and performed with bands in Minnesota’s blues scene. Now a junior at Duluth East, she is taking a different direction with her new project, a duo with her friend and classmate Bailey Stender. It’s an acoustic act, featuring Kay on guitar. They describe themselves as “mischief and music makers” who play an eclectic mix of Kay’s originals and some pop and classic rock covers.
