About this Event

We would like to introduce you to one of our best recording artists here in the Jinglebob Music Recording Studio. Ryan Fritz is a working cowboy by trade from the Longview area, and a fine singer, songwriter and recording artist. If you like authentic, downhome cowboy music, you will not want to miss this one!

Advance tickets are $29, Tickets at the door are $35.

Here is a little info on what to expect:

Poet Waddie Mitchell said of Ryan Fritz “He uses just a little … to say a lot.” That’s pretty high praise coming from one of the most respected poets and working cowboys in contemporary North American western circles.

Born in northern BC, raised in southern Alberta, cowboying in BC on some of Canada’s oldest and largest outfits, then settling down with his family in Saskatchewan and now Alberta, Ryan has more than a few memories and experiences to draw on. Quiet and unassuming, yet entirely captivating his audiences he weaves those stories into excellently crafted lyrics and melodies, supported on upright bass by his youngest son Hoss.

You’ll hear some Ian Tyson influence; as a kid Ryan was his biggest fan, and now he lives just five minutes from the Canadian icon, spending a lot of time visiting with Ian, the two of them sharing stories of our western heritage present and past.

Ryan’s awards include the Wrangler Heritage Award for “outstanding original western composition” for his song “Keeper Of The West”, presented to him at the Western Heritage Museum and National Cowboy Hall Of Fame in Oklahoma City, and the Pro Cowboy Country Awards (Fort Smith, Arkansas) Song Of The Year for “Give The Boy A Rope”, a cowboy version of giving your kid a ball and glove; the relationship’s not much good if you don’t spend time together teaching and learning. Check out the video at youtu.be/dtZwZvRLagU.

Ben will open the show and then join him for the last few songs. Again the venue will be the warm ambience of the Withrow Church, with dessert and coffee served at intermission. Let’s pack the place for one of Canada’s most promising western singers and songwriters.

You can stalk him at www.ryanfritz.net, and listen to his music at https://music.apple.com/ca/artist/ryan-fritz/734029883
