The Beach @Governors Island
Recently named one of the 100 Greatest Living Songwriters by Paste Magazine, Idaho-born Josh Ritter has been on a steady rise through relentless touring and prolific songwriting. The thirty-one year old has released five albums and appeared on Late Night witrh David Letterman twice. His most recent record, The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter, has earned critical acclaim worldwide, and his constant touring has made him a star both in the US and overseas. The New York Times writes, “…he sets out to carry a world of ideas on a few basic chords… there is no limit to the depth and ambition of his songs.”
The Beach opens at 10am, come early and enjoy the day.
