RUTH'S BAR TV SHOW
THE BAR OPENS ITS DOORS
This program is the brainchild of award winning writer/producer Ruth Adkins Robinson and Motown veteran Cornelius Grant. They partnered with Grammy nominated producer/performer Allen Sovory and television executive Joe Burk to produce a show that emotionally evokes the music from the 60s forward, through performances and behind the scenes looks from the writers/producers and performers who were there.
The setting is a neighborhood bar, as the founder says, "If your neighborhood happens to be the music industry." From her seat at the end of the bar, with the light and music bouncing off a vintage chandelier and an old red brick wall, Ruth welcomes guests with something to say about the business, perhaps perform a song or two,drink tea with her from her vintage bone china collection or just laugh at the memories they share.
