About The Music favourite Josh Ritter has taken a break from recording his follow up to the Animal Years to go on tour in North America and Canada. Chromewaves has a live review of his show at The Horseshoe Tavern in Canada. It's a good review and features some mp3s.
"Maybe it's the relatively close proximity from his hometown of Moscow, Idaho to the 49th parallel, but Josh Ritter has always seemed to exhibit a special fondness for Canada and judging from the sold-out Horseshoe Tavern on Thursday night, Canada loves him too. Taking a break from recording the follow-up to his splendid 2006 release The Animal Years, Ritter has been touring across North America in a solo acoustic format playing smaller venues than he would normally, much to the delight of those in attendance."

Also The Winnipeg Sun and Georgia Straight talk to Ritter about the roots of his songcraft and the politics of The Animal Years, respectively.
