Live at the Ryman
Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band
with special guest Kathleen Edwards
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) and Gathering (2017). The prolific singer/songwriter returned in 2019 with his tenth full-length effort, Fever Breaks, which was produced by Jason Isbell, and backed by Isbell’s band the 400 Unit, continuing to push the boundaries of folk and Americana, furthering Ritter’s ascension to modern singer/songwriter royalty.
