A father/son duo live from Cafe Coda!! https://youtu.be/vERfBFiMZyg A regular performer in listening room and house concerts from Wisconsin to his native Kentucky, acoustic roots rocker and Uvutlittle recording artist Ritt Deitz has been writing and recording since the age of eleven. The Onion’s AV Club called his songs “concurrently earthy, ethereal and intelligent” and compared him to songwriters Greg Brown and Bruce Cockburn. Madison's Isthmus says, "Deitz combines rugged mountain sonics with an aesthetic that’s closer to ragtime than anything else. At times, he resembles Tom Waits in his ability to marry sophistication with down-homeness, which he puts on full display in his ninth album, Horses and Smoke." Ritt is joined in this set by his son Wilder Deitz, folk/jazz pianist, leader of the neo-soul Wilder Deitz Group, and recent solo guest on Live at Cafe Coda. Wilder has played music with his dad, live and otherwise, since he was a child. Father and son are honored by the invitation to this already-storied Madison live-music venue. https://cafecoda.club/ GoFundMe "Keep Coda Alive" https://www.gofundme.com/keep-coda-alive/ Thank you for your continued support of live music!
