About this event

FITZGERALDS SONGWRITER CIRCLE:HOSTED BY RYAN JOSEPH ANDERSONW/ SPECIAL GUESTS Jared Rabin and Megan Sampson FREE SHOW! Click Book Now and RSVP to gaurantee your spot.Ryan Joseph Andersons solo career began in April 2014 with the release of his debut album, The Weavers Broom. The album, engineered and co-produced by Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hooray for the Riff Raff), was hailed as one of the best Americana records of the year. Songs from The Weavers Broom made best of lists for Daytrotter and Songpickr and were featured in Paste and Magnet. American Songwriter said that Anderson evokes the open-tunings of Nick Drake as well as the barroom howl of Tom Waits. Before going solo, Anderson was known as the bandleader and songwriter for the beloved Chicago roots outfit Go Long Mule, as a guitar slinger for garage-rockers Rambos, and as a producer, sessions man and sideman for numerous artists. His influences range from country blues to psychedelic rock and are on prominent display in his masterful guitar playing and songwriting. Andersons sophomore release, City of Vines was released in the summer of 2017 to critical acclaim. He toured extensively in support of the record and has shared the stage with such acts as Robert Earl Keene, Honey Honey, Robbie Fulks, Charlie Parr, and Amy Helm.
