culture clash, demolition derbies, the dishes, the working class, and hope. From NPR's Weekend Edition to major music festivals, she is moving audiences around the globe with her stories in song and doubly sweet and sinewy voice, "a captivating performer," (R2 Magazine.) With partner Sean Feder on dobro and banjo, Rita delivers what No Depression calls "Authentic American folk music to stir the soul." 

"Razor-sharp songs and great live performances," The Daily Mirror

"Filled with poetically thoughtful lyrics, gorgeous harmonies and stunning musicianship. There
