Josh Ritter

Named one of the 100 Best Living Songwriters by Paste Magazine, Josh Ritter is a chameleon, drawing from the deep reservoir filled by predecessors like Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan to develop a creative spring distinctly his own. Savor “a masterful singer/songwriter” and an engaging performer “who always hits the mark when it comes to defining not only his personal perspective but also those sweeping sentiments that allow him to find universal appeal” (American Songwriter). Ritter will perform in the Festival’s Perry Pavilion with a full band.
