LaGrange, GA - Jammates Records announces two more performance openers with Rodrigo y Gabriela for rising roots musician Marshall Ruffin. The new Ruffin shows include Knoxville's Tennessee Theatre on September 25th (8:00pm) and Asheville North Carolina's Orange Peel on September 26th (9:00pm). These dates follow a successful August pairing with the duo at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA.

"I'm honored to be on the bill again with Rodrigo y Gabriela. They are two truly gifted guitarists attracting large numbers of music fans with their unique musical offering. I'll be playing a short solo opener featuring select cuts from my CD, plus a few new ones from my upcoming record", states Ruffin.

Rich Man's Dime, Ruffin's recently released recording spent eight weeks over the summer on the Roots Blues Chart. The EP features a collection of five original songs that showcases Marshall's main influences of roots and blues music.

The twenty-four year old musician grew up in typical Americana, but where science was at the fabric of the family. After finding a guitar in the attic during his high school years, Ruffin began to teach himself to play. It was while attending college in Richmond, Virginia that he found his focus in the music department. After two years, Marshall applied and was accepted to the Berklee College of Music to finish his studies. During his Boston stay, Ruffin recognized and tapped into his songwriting and vocal gifts. Marshall now hails from Columbus, GA, home of Mother of the Blues, Ma Rainey.
