What's On / Gretchen Peters with special guest Ben Glover
at The Queen's Hall
Known as a writer of intelligent and introspective songs in the country/folk/pop vein, Gretchen Peters achieved renown through country stars covering her material including Trisha Yearwood, George Strait and Patty Loveless. She received her first Grammy nomination for Song of the Year in 1995 for Independence Day which was recorded by Martina McBride. She was nominated again for a Song of the Year Grammy in 1996 with the Patty Loveless chart-topper You Don't Even Know Who I Am.
Peters' scope isn't limited to just country music, as she demonstrated by co-writing Rock Steady with Bryan Adams. Since 1996 she has released eight albums most recently Hello Cruel World which Bob Harris called "elegant, touching and articulate". Gretchen performs with band members Barry Walsh and Christine Bougie.
“Gretchen's a master singer songwriter on my major league dream team: along with Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Lucinda Williams, Eliza Gilkyson, John Prine, and one or two other designated hitters and relief pitchers of the soul. And, Goddamn can she sing. She's at the top of her game; batting clean-up in the major leagues.” (Tom Russell, singer-songwriter)
