KPFK’s UNCLE RUTHIE, host of Halfway Down the Stairs, will present a highly interactive Bach program for an audience of all ages. She will be performing with her 100 year old pump organ and her collection of musical instruments will be in tow so that her audience can join in the Bach playing fun!
Ruthie “Uncle Ruthie” Buell is a poet, a songwriter, a music teacher and has been a radio broadcaster on KPFK 90.7 FM for over 50 years. She’s the host of the children’s show “Halfway Down the Stairs” on KPFK. From both Chicago and a farm in Wisconsin, Ruthie has been the creator of art and song and artistic experiences for as long as anyone has known her. She often performs at Beyond Baroque and at various venues in Los Angeles, makes delicious meals for friends and neighbors with lots of butter and cream, and can play every instrument hanging on a wall or placed on a tabletop of her home. Her most recent inspired projects have been a book of poems and the creation of The Poet Tree, her front yard Chinese Elm that invites passersby to sit under its shade, write a verse and pin it to the tree.
