Josh Ritter Works In Progress + Songs You Know

Renowned singer, songwriter, musician, artist, and best-selling author JOSH RITTER released his eleventh studio album, Spectral Lines, this past spring.

One of today’s most thoughtful and prolific voices, Ritter has been praised by NPR Music on 2019’s widely acclaimed Fever Breaks album:  “He remains a hydrant of ideas while embodying an endless capacity for empathy and indignation, often within a single song.”

In addition to his work as a musician, Ritter has released two novels to date:  2021’s The Great Glorious Goddamn of It All and 2011’s Bright’s Passage.  Released to critical attention, Stephen King wrote in The New York Times Book Review that Bright’s Passage “shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his prime…This is the work of a gifted novelist.”

This is a special “Works In Progress + Songs You Know” solo show.  Here’s a note from Ritter about the event:

“I’ve realized that a necessary part of working on records is finding the material that hangs together.  I write A LOT of songs, and not all of them play nicely with the others.  The most useful (and fun) way to find a song’s heart is to periodically play some shows where I’m able to get it all out there and see how I feel about them.  I’m really looking forward to these shows for the chance to get all these songs, and some that are old friends, out on the table for a good time.”

Another Longworth-Anderson Series evening of great music, food, and drink!  Complimentary pre-concert reception features live local music, light bites from Ollie’s Trolley and N.Y.P.D. Pizza, and craft beer tastings from HighGrain Brewing Co.
