Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band, Milk Carton Kids 

When: Wed., June 26 2013
JOSH RITTER & THE ROYAL CITY BAND Treading the waters of folk and Americana, Josh Ritter creates musical hooks and tight arrangements that are deepened by narrative. The singer/songwriter’s last album, 2010’s So Runs The World, was first released in Ireland before crossing the pond so that we Americans could ponder the soulful storytelling on tracks like “Change of Time” and “Folk Bloodbath.” No stranger to Blumenthal Performing Arts’ McGlohon Theater, where he’s sold out shows in the past, Ritter returns this time to the bigger venue, Knight Theater. His newest record, The Beast in its Tracks, was released earlier this year. In large part, the album is inspired by his divorce from fellow musician Dawn Landes. But don’t go thinking this is a tear fest. Though composed at a difficult time in Ritter’s life, the album is hopeful despite the gloom and shift of emotions.
