Josh Ritter Returns to Canada

Published: 2004-12-20
After scoping out Canada by tagging along with Sarah Harmer, singer/songwriter Josh Ritter is ready to venture to the land up north once again, but this time with his own name at the top of the bill. He won't be too lonely in this vast land of ours though, as Halifax-based songstress Jill Barber is set to keep him company. So far Ritter has 6 dates confirmed on his Canadian solo tour, all taking place in Ontario and Quebec.

The tour is set to kick off at the end of January, with Ritter visiting Toronto first on the 29th; after he tours Ontario, he will then continue on to play two dates in Quebec, finishing off in Montreal on February 6th. Currently Ritter should be arriving home for the holidays from a tour of Ireland (which just wrapped on December 19th in Galway), during which another Canadian songstress - named Kathleen Edwards - accompanied him.

Ritter continues to play in support of his most recent full-length 'Hello Starling'. The 11-track record was released in Canada on August 24th, 2004 through V2 Canada, but saw its first release a year earlier in the UK. Critically-acclaimed across the globe, 'Hello Starling' was the follow-up to his 2001 breakthrough album 'Golden Age of Radio'.

Josh Ritter's upcoming performances with Jill Barber:

January 29 Toronto, ON - The Rivoli
January 31 Hamilton, ON - The Casbah
February 3 Kingston, ON - Queen's University Grad Club
February 4 Waterloo, ON - Bomb Shelter
February 5 Wakefield, QC - Blacksheep Inn
February 6 Montreal, QC - CafÈ Campus
