An Acoustic Evening with JOSH RITTER

November 10, 2016 – 7:30pm

91 University Place, Princeton, www.mccarter.org | 609-258-2787

Josh Ritter is a singer/songwriter with a strong voice, keen wit, and an evocative way with words who has built a loyal following as one of the leading lights on the contemporary folk scene. Known for his distinctive Americana style and narrative lyrics, he’s been making recordings for almost 20 years, including hisHistorical Conquests(2007) and So Runs the World Away (2010), both full of startling detail, compelling subject matter, and stellar musicianship. The latest of his eight full-length albums is last year’s Sermon on the Rocks, which Ritter calls his foray into “messianic oracular honky-tonk.” Listening to his songs, which are rich in metaphor and nimble wordplay (he’s also written a novel) reveals his legacy to such master wordsmiths as Bob Dylan, John Prine, and Paul Simon. And such single classics as Still Beating and Thin Blue Flame testify to Ritter’s impact in re-setting the singer/songwriter bar ever higher.
