We are “Raise the ‘Ruth”, a community choir of about 40 men and women in Redruth - and we love to sing.
The group was started by Sophie and Craig in September 2009 with the aim of bringing together adults of all ages, and all parts of the community through a capella singing.
Since then, Sophie and Craig have arranged and taught songs from many genres (from pop to country, and rock to gospel… whatever takes their fancy really!).
Quite a few of our members have been surprised that our sound and feel is not what they were expecting from a choir, being very different from the traditional male voice and church choirs.
Craig and Sophie take their inspiration from from their mentor Vicky Abbott, who runs many fantastic choirs all over Cornwall.
