The Ruta Beggars infuses traditional bluegrass and early swing to create a timeless act filled with intricate and smooth vocal harmonies, fiery instrumentals, and plenty of fun. It has been praised for its creative and tasteful arrangements and charming performances.

The Ruta Beggars has been featured on Steve Martin’s Unreal Bluegrass, Brian O'Donovan's A Celtic Sojourn, and the main stages of Joe Val Festival, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, and Ossipee Valley Music Festival, to name a few. Brought together by their passion for bluegrass, the members of the Ruta Beggars are Micah Nicol (guitar), Sofia Chiarandini (fiddle), Ariel Wyner (mandolin), and Trevin Nelson (banjo), who met while studying at Berklee's American Roots Program.
