An Evening with Josh Ritter
September 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An American singer-songwriter with a deep, expressive voice, a keen wit, and an evocative way with words, Josh Ritter has built a loyal following as one of the leading lights on the Americana scene with his incisive songwriting. Emerging in 2000 with his eponymous debut album, Ritter hit his stride in 2007 with the release of The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter, which introduced elements of rock, country, and blues into the mix. What followed was a string of acclaimed outings like Beast in Its Tracks (2013), Gathering (2017), and Fever Breaks (2019) that continued to push the boundaries of folk and Americana, furthering Ritter’s ascension to modern singer-songwriter royalty.
When planning this tour, Ritter was feeling the urge to play his quieter more narrative songs that he may not always get the chance to perform during larger rock shows. He has chosen to perform in cathedrals and churches since these are spaces that bring a special kind of glow to each performance. Join Caffe Lena for this very special solo performance at the Bethesda Episcopal Church in Saratoga Springs.
This show is presented in collaboration with Saratoga Performing Arts Center and WEXT.
