I have to keep my feelings for the Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band show last night short and sweet before I dissolve into an inarticulate mess, so here we go.
Firstly, what an incredible set. I never thought I’d get to hear ‘Bone of Song’ played live and it was a truly beautiful experience.
Secondly, from the instant Josh hit the stage you couldn’t help but return the huge smile that spread across his face. Him and the whole band love what they do so much, and it’s impossible not to get swept up in their enjoyment too.
Third, the red, roofless van from Luton. Nothing further.
Fourth, I hope he continues to make music for a really long time and still astounds people with his words and melodies and his general love for playing live music.
I hope everyone that saw/is going to see them on this tour had/has as amazing a time as I did.
