On June 27, 2019 Sisters Folk Festival will present Josh Ritter & The Royal City Band at the Sisters High School Auditorium in a fundraising concert for “Connected by Creativity,” a capital campaign of the Sisters Folk Festival, Inc. Tickets will go on sale to the general public April 17th at 10 a.m. and are $35 to $60 plus fees.
Acclaimed singer and songwriter Josh Ritter is celebrating the release of his 10th studio album Fever Breaks. Produced by Grammy Award-winning musician Jason Isbell, the 10-song record was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A. Paste magazine considers Ritter “one of the 100 best songwriters living today” and Rolling Stone says of Fever Breaks “It’s classic Ritter on Muscle Shoals-bred steroids.”
Sisters Folk Festival has been conducting a capital campaign for the past year to purchase the Sisters Art Works building and the adjacent land, which serve as the largest venue for the annual Festival and a community space for events throughout the year. The purchase of the building will allow Sisters Folk Festival to secure their largest venue space, provide a dedicated “home” to execute their mission of enriching lives through arts and music performance and education, and to create new ways to serve the community through programming with adults, after-school and underserved populations.
