The Rudolstadt festival is Germany's biggest roots, folk and world music festival. The concerts take place throughout the entire town itself – from the baroque church to the town theatre, from the castle terrace to the marketplace, on thirty-two stages. Every year, the Ruth Prize awards a creative and outstanding act. This year, it was our turn! Our concert was scheduled at the palace square in the middle of the afternoon, at the Große Buhne Heidecksburg, an open air venue on what turned out to be the hottest day of the month. The Ruth Prize ceremony was set to start at 4pm. We performed afterwards at over 40 degrees Celsius to an audience of passionate music lovers and festival's veterans. We were really excited, survived after performing in such incredible heat, and thrilled to have received the Ruth prize 2015!
