Following her two AMA Awards for 2015’s Blackbirds, Gretchen Peters’s 2018 album Dancing With the Beast marked another career high.
Blending shades of country-rock, indie-folk and Southern gothic with Peters’s smokily honeyed voice, it features all-female characters, from pre-teen to elderly, whose stories vividly illuminate both the personal and political. Reprising her headlining set at the 2019 Celtic Connections Festival, Glasgow, Gretchen will be joined by her band, led by long-time musical partner Barry Walsh.
This show was rescheduled from 2nd June 2021 (previously 10th February 2021 / 20th May 2020).
Hailed by many as one of Nashville's best contemporary songwriters, Gretchen Peters' intelligent and introspective songs have been covered by pop, country, blues and folk artists all over the world. She possesses a rare ability to drive a strong point, yet capture it eloquently in song. That ability has won Peters two Grammy nominations and sold her millions of records worldwide.
