In his short time as a singer and songwriter, Josh Ritter has been compared to such music greats as Neil Young, Ray LaMontagne and John Prine. Ritter’s breakout albums, 2006’s “The Animal Years” and 2007’s “The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter,” both received critical acclaim, leading to increasing popularity, television appearances and sold-out tours. His music holds some of the most complex and thought-provoking lyrics in today’s music. Paste Magazine even named Ritter one of the 100 greatest living songwriters. After performing to huge crowds in places like Lewis Ginter’s Groovin’ in the Garden, Josh Ritter returns to River City for a more personal performance when he appears at University of Richmond’s Modlin Center for the Arts on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 7:30 p.m. $17-$34. 289-8980.
