On July 15, Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present two extraordinary singer-songwriters, Josh Ritter and Brett Dennen. Ritter and Dennen will take the stage at 8 pm, performing separately in double-bill concert format.
Beloved by fans worldwide for his ebullient performances and inventive songwriting, Idaho native Josh Ritter has released seven albums over the course of his career. They’ve drawn acclaim from fans, critics, and fellow writers alike—novelist Stephen King called Ritter’s landmark album The Animal Years, “The most exuberant outburst of imagery since Bob Dylan’s A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall.”
Ritter is joined at DCA by folk-pop songwriter Brett Dennen, who honed his craft at summer camps in the Sierra Nevada foothills. With a knack for hooky melodies and joyful lyrics, Dennen has made a name for himself nationwide. He is fresh off the May release of Por Favor, an intimate and revealing new album produced by Dave Cobb, fresh off his Grammy-winning work with Chris Stapleton and Jason Isbell.
Josh Ritter and Brett Dennen will perform at DCA at 8 pm. Tickets for the concert range from $35 to $65. Advance reservations are recommended and can be made through the DCA box office, located at 3926 Highway 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open 12-5 pm, Monday through Friday. Tickets can be purchased in person, by calling 920.868.2728, or going to dcauditorium.org.
