The Blenders Music Series is pleased to present Josh Ritter on Tuesday, February 27th at the Lyric Theatre in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Josh Ritter is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and author and is known for his distinctive Americana style and narrative lyrics. Don’t miss out on this amazing performance!

Josh Ritter originates from Moscow, Idaho in the United States and with his strong voice, wit, and evocative ability with words, Ritter has built a following in the contemporary folk scene. Soon after starting university, Ritter decided to pursue music and released his first self-titled album in 1999. In 2002, Ritter’s album “The Golden Age of Radio” kickstarted his music career and gained him notice by folk fans and critics. In 2006, Ritter was named one of the 100 Greatest Living Songwriters by Paste Magazine.

After Ritter’s second album, he quickly gained word-of-mouth success in Ireland and in 2003, Ritter’s third album “Hello Starling” was released and became No. 2 on the Irish charts. Since then, Ritter has headlined with several artists over the years including Ron Sexsmith and Joan Baez. In 2010 Ritter’s album “So Runs the World Away”, was released and he toured with his newly named group, The Royal City Band to promote the new album. The band toured in Ireland and the United States with a sellout performance at the Grand Canal Theatre in Dublin. In 2011, his band continued their tour around Europe and America.

Josh Ritter also has an interest in writing and published his first novel Bright’s Passage in June of 2011. Over the course of Ritter’s music career, he has released 7 albums and has been performing for 20 years.
