Chuck Ragan

and guests TBA

In a musical life that spans close to three decades, Chuck Ragan has consistently worn his
heart on his sleeve, and carved out a musical niche in the process. First with post-hardcore
trailblazers Hot Water Music and subsequently on his own, he’s built a large and singularly
powerful body of work whose honesty, immediacy and warmth have won the loyalty of a fiercely
devoted international fan base that’s supported him through his various musical incarnations.
In 2005, feeling the urge to stretch out creatively, Ragan ventured into a more acoustic
approach. He enthusiastically embraced his new status as solo troubadour, exploring an
expanded palette of acoustic and electric textures on the acclaimed albums Feast or Famine,
Gold Country, Covering Ground, Till Midnight and The Flame In The Flood.
In 2008, Ragan launched the long-running Revival Tour, a series of collaborative acoustic
adventures featuring a diverse assortment of punk, bluegrass and alt-country performers. In
addition to Ragan, the Revival Tour, which has visited Britain, Europe, Australia and
Scandinavia as well as North America, has featured a broad array of talents, including Anderson
Family Bluegrass, Rise Against frontman Tim McIlrath, Craig Finn of the Hold Steady, Cory
Branan, Ben Kweller, Laura Jane Grace, Jay Malinowski of Bedouin Soundclash, Tim Barry,
Austin Lucas, Matt Pryor of the Get Up Kids, Jesse Malin, Chris Carrabba, Chris McCaughan,
Lucero’s Ben Nichols, Dave Hause, Flogging Molly’s Matt Hensley and Nathan Maxwell, Joey
Cape, Brian Fallon of the Gaslight Anthem, Audra Mae, Emily Barker, Dan Andriano of the
Alkaline Trio, along with Jenny O, Kevin Seconds, Frank Turner, Rocky Votolato, Jon
Snodgrass, Chad Price and Jenny Owen Youngs.
“The way I see it,” Ragan observes, “we’re faced with tons of inspiration every day. Every step
of this life has a way of teaching you something, showing you something, opening your ears and
your heart to something. I have all these friends out there, and this community that supports me,
who believe in what I’m doing and who believe in the power of music and the power of
“It’s a blessing and a privilege to stand on stage and play music for people,” he continues. “I
meet so many folks out there, and they’re so hospitable and so kind and say such nice things to
me about the songs. The support and the energy that I get from them is what makes it possible
for me to keep doing this. And when I’m there and in that moment, it’s important to me to give it
back to them as strongly as they’re giving it to me.”
