Roadburn Festival recently announced that dark folk singer Emma Ruth Rundle was one of two curators for the 2020 edition. Unfortunately that event has been postponed. Rundle’s third studio album, On Dark Horses, was released by Sargent House in 2018, and it featured contributions by Jay Jayle members Evan Patterson and Todd Cook as well as Dylan Nadon of Wovenhand. Also in 2018, Rundle provided backing vocals for “Just Breathe”, a song on American rock band Thrice’s 2018 album Palms.Dark Folk Singer Emma Ruth Rundle
