Friday Night Video

One week from this Friday the wonderful Josh Ritter will perform live, for free, at SummerStage in Central Park. I've seen Josh perform at least six or seven times over the last ten years and he's one of most charismatic live musicians you'll find. The last time I saw him was a little over a year ago here at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in an inspired joint performance with violinist Hilary Hahn. You can hear the entire show at NPR right here. This time he's upping the ante on unusual pairings by teaming up with The New York Pops. The show is from 8pm to 10pm and I will most definitely be there. If you'd like to join me, let me know.

In the meantime, here's a great video of Ritter performing "To The Dogs Or Whoever" on David Letterman. Ritter's style is hard to pin down, especially from album to album, but he's got the spirit of a young Bruce Springsteen coursing through his veins and that's definitely on display here. Enjoy!
