Josh Ritter on stage with the Minnesota Orchestra
Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band, who will join us in Charleston on August 1, have been into some neat things lately.
Before embarking on a hugely successful trip to Ireland they did a gig with a pretty prestigious back-up band, the Minnesota Orchestra.
Check out this review of the show and take a look at some photos from the Ireland shows on his website.
Ritter premiered a new music video for "The Curse" at NPR's All Songs Considered Blog, directed by drummer and puppeteer Liam Hurley. (Click to Purchase the song on Amazon). It appears on Ritter's critically acclaimed latest CD "So Runs The World Away." ($8.99 on Amazon). He talks more about it in this Morning Edition interview.
Ritter & the Royal City Band join us Sunday, August 1 at the Clay Center, along with folk music icon Judy Collins, balladeer Mary Gauthier, newcomer Megan McCormick and big-voiced Serena Ryder.
