The Idaho-born and deeply rooted Americana rock singer/songwriter Josh Ritter has produced a compelling stream of records since his 2000 eponymous debut and his 2001 breakout release Golden Age of Radio. Deemed, like so many others, the “next Dylan” at various points in his serious and prolific career, the talented storyteller and roots poet has instead succeeded in becoming the only Josh Ritter. Counted in Paste Magazine’s 100 Best Living Songwriters, Ritter returns to the Bearsville Theater on Saturday, November 12 at 8 p.m., touring in support of his latest release, Sermon on the Rocks, featuring the single, “Getting Ready to Get Down.” Lowland Hum opens.
General admission tickets cost $35, reserved seats $40, and Golden Circle admission is $45. For tickets and more information, visit www.bearsvilletheater.com. The Bearsville Theater is located at 219 Tinker Street in Woodstock.
