Following the storming success of the recent 24-piece orchestra shows at Dublin’s Vicar Street and The Marquee in Cork, Josh Ritter returns to his spiritual Irish home of Whelan’s for a series of intimate shows to celebrate the release of the acoustic reissue series of his albums The Golden Age Of Radio, Hello Starling & The Animal Years, as well the 20th anniversary of Ireland’s most famous live music venue.

Inspired by recent shows with the legendary John Prine, these shows will see Josh play with a brand new string band comprising upright bass, mandolin and acoustic guitar played by his friends from the Love Canon String Band.

In addition Josh will be previewing new material from his forthcoming 6th studio Album which due to be released early next year.

Playing shows like these is what Josh loves most about coming to Ireland – he likes to see the whites of your eyes!
