Global troubadour Josh Ritter explains how personal tragedies might just change the direction of his hyper-literate folk.

The industrious Idaho-born musical wanderer Josh Ritter released his sixth album of entrancing fables  So Runs The World Away in 2010, added an EP ‘Bringing In The Darlings’ to the Australian tour edition, and is already at work on a new novel and a new album.

We talk to him about all of the above, plus being named as one of the best songwriters in the world, having Stephen King as a fan, being a ‘ham’ during live shows, and how a recent brush with death and his divorce last year will affect new music .
