Ritt & Wilder Deitz

May 21 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Ritt & Wilder Dietz

Music has been intrinsically linked with family in the Deitz household for generations. Deitz grew up in the Ohio River Valley in Kentucky; his great-great-uncle played in a popular Cincinnati band, his great-grandfather was a banjo player, and his father and uncle would harmonize together at family gatherings.

Ritt Deitz, who also directs the Professional French Masters Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is an acclaimed singer-songwriter who has been compared to Greg Brown and Bruce Cockburn. Wilder Deitz is an eclectic musician who plays jazz and hip-hop, and who founded the Wilder Deitz School for Creative Music in January.

Father and son used the pandemic year to arrange songs, some written by Ritt and some written by Wilder, for an album they plan to record this fall.
