WHAT'S ON / Gretchen Peters
Since the release of her 2012 album Hello Cruel World, two-time Grammy nominee Gretchen Peters has been in near-constant motion, touring for the past two years and releasing a live DVD and CD, Woman On The Wheel, in early 2013. Since 2012 she’s appeared at the Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Cambridge Folk Festivals; and in addition to headlining her own sold-out tours, she’s supported country and folk legends Guy Clark, Arlo Guthrie and John Prine. Her latest accolade is her induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in October 2014.
2015 sees the release of her much-anticipated new album, Blackbirds. Gretchen performs tonight with her band: Barry Walsh (piano, accordion, vocals), Christine Bougie (lap steel, electric guitar, drums) and Conor McCreanor (bass).
