The Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia is SOLD OUT, however, you can watch Josh Ritter perform a live midday concert this Friday on VuHaus.

Ritter is stopping by the World Café Live for Free at Noon on the heels of the release of his eighth studio album, Sermon on the Rocks. Known for his narrative-rich Americana style, Ritter takes a light and playful tone on the new record, which he recorded with The Royal City Band in New Orleans. His Free at Noon show will feature many of these new tracks and likely a few old favorites.

Ritter plays a headlining show at Union Transfer this February 21st, but you can catch him warming up for tour by RSVPing to reserve your spot for this week's Free at Noon in Philadelphia, or tuning in at 88.5FM and worldwide at
