With melody supporting melancholy, the songs on Peters' new album, Dancing with the Beast, combine to lift the effort over the high artistic bar set by her last outing, 2015's award-winning Blackbirds.
Beauty tempered by dread, sorrow buoyed by hope, these are the ever-present tugs of war that make life worth living and songs worth writing. And they are the over-riding themes that make Gretchen Peters one of her generation's most compelling singer/songwriters.
Gretchen will be supported by Kim Richey.
Presented by The Queen’s Hall
