Singer/songwriter Josh Ritter in concert at Weis Center



The new album follows Ritter’s 2010 release, "So Runs The World Away", of which Bob Boilen from NPR Music declared, "I’ve come to expect good records from him … but this one took my breath away," while the Boston Globe praised it as, "quite sensational … marks the finest music he has made." The Washington Post says, "How refreshing and inspiring it is to encounter a young artist whose achievements match his ambitions."


In 2011, Ritter made his debut as a published author with his New York Times best-selling novel, Bright’s Passage. Of the work, Stephen King writes in The New York Times Book Review, "Shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his prime ... This is the work of a gifted novelist."


Tickets for the performance are $20 for adults, $16 for seniors ages 62+, $10 for youth under 18, and $10 for all college students.
