Ruth Armishaw is a freelance musician based in Wellington, New Zealand.
A chameleon of the Wellington music scene, you could easily see Ruth singing and playing jazz in a restaurant on Thursday, singing Brazilian Samba in a bar on Friday, in costume on stage at the Opera House on Saturday, and singing as a soloist for a choral oratorio concert Sunday afternoon.
