Rather than follow the path of his two parents who chose neuroscience as a career choice, Josh Ritter went the singer/songwriter route. Delivering an Americana/folk-tinged sound, Ritter is currently on tour in promotion of his newest (released May 4) CD, So Runs The World Away. The solo artist was gracious enough to make a track, "Change of Time," from the album available for free download on his Web site. Give it a listen and, provided you like what you hear, be sure to check him out when he visits Charlotte for a performance at McGlohon Theatre. With The Royal City Band. $20 and up. 7:30 p.m. McGlohon Theatre, 345 N. College St. 704-372-1000. www.blumenthalcenter.org.
