To celebrate publication of his debut novel, Bright's Passage (New Island) in June, American singer-songwriter Josh Ritter comes to Triskel Christchurch to read from the novel and play acoustically.
“Bright’s Passage shines with a compressed lyricism that recalls Ray Bradbury in his prime… This is the work of a gifted novelist…”- Stephen King, New York Times Book Review
The American singer-songwriter will read chapters from his forthcoming debut novel Bright’s Passage (New Island) as well as performing a number of his songs acoustically.
As a songwriter Josh Ritter is a natural born storyteller in the Dylan/Guthrie mould, distilling full character-driven narratives into concise and compelling vignettes. It comes as little surprise therefore that the alt-folk/Americana star should make such a deft transition to full-length fiction.
Ritter’s debut novel, Bright’s Passage, is the story of Henry Bright, newly returned to West Virginia from the battlefields of the First World War. Grief-stricken by the death of his young wife and confronted by the destruction of the only home he’s ever known, Bright is soon cast adrift. His only hope is the angel who followed him to Appalachia from the trenches of France and who now guides him and his young son towards uncertain salvation.
His latest musical work is a 6 track EP titled Bringing In The Darlings which includes a fantastic hand crafted video for 'Love Is Making It's Way Back Home'. The EP was recorded and mixed over 4 days in a tiny studio in Brooklyn, New York. The music video was created by hand with over 120,000 pieces of construction paper, no effects were added.
With the same dark wit and unique imagination that characterises his songs, Bright’s Passage is an assured and arresting debut from a bright new literary talent.
