Ritt Deitz HORSES AND SMOKE


Hi friends,

I am happy to see the lovely review of my new record in this past week's ISTHMUS. I'll share it with you here, if you haven't seen it yet. It reminds me of the hard work that my bandmates put in, and of course of the excellent circa-1978 open-reel engineering Bruce Kasprzyk did to make this recording sound so rich:

Check out this live video of Pete St. John's tune, "The Fields of Athenry," which is also on our record:

I'll be playing around the Midwest this fall, behind the record, in varying combinations--with Joe the bassist, with my son Wilder sometimes, often with both and hammered dulcimer master Dave. Hope to see you at one of these upcoming shows:

9/15 Common Ground (Middleton, WI)
9/23 Sanctuary Space Fundraiser with East Side Acoustic Ensemble, James Reeb UU Church (Madison, WI)
10/5 York Street Cafe (Newport, KY)
10/6 House Concert (Louisville, KY)

11/9 Village Booksmith (Baraboo, WI)

Only love is stronger than music,
