Hello Staring 20th Anniversary Tour
When Josh Ritter wrote his 2003 album Hello Starling, he was playing coffee shops and open mics. By the time it came out, he was catapulted to fame on tour with bands such as The Frames and Joan Baez. A wandering songwriter, living on the road, spending much of his time in Europe – hearing his songs on the radio for the first time, staying up all night, doing all these things he once thought he could only have dreamt of.
It was a grand time, and now just feels right to kick off the 20th anniversary of the album across the UK and Europe, where he spent so much time way back then.
