Josh Ritter tours this spring, haunts our sleep
Josh Ritter is going on tour; ah, the stuff that dreams are made of. Last time he went on a little jaunt, Ritter let us read his diary. We didn’t even have to go sneaking into his hotel room, digging under mattresses to find it.
Dawn Landes is currently supporting his dates in the Netherlands and United Kingdom. Ritter will then return to the U.S. and join forces with Hilary Hahn. A Grammy-winning violinist, Hahn was the soloist in the score for The Village, among many other ventures. Langhorne Slim and Ingrid Michaelson will also be stopping in for a few dates.
More supporting acts should be posted in the near future on Ritter’s site. Anyone who caught his set at Langerado can attest to Ritter’s supreme mastery of songcraft, further proof that spuds aren’t the only fantastic thing coming out of Idaho these days.
