Gretchen Peters

31st Jul 2015 @ 20:00 - 23:00


Cambridge Folk Festival Warm Up Concert! 

No supports 2 sets by Gretchen 

Unreserved all seated show


Golden Globe and two-time Grammy nominee, country and folk songstress Gretchen Peters announces this rare Frome appearance

The latest accolade for the Nashville-based singer-songwriter is her induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in October 2014. There she joins names like Johnny Cash, Rodney Crowell, Don & Phil Everly, Woody Guthrie, Merle Haggard, Tom T. Hall, Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton and Hank Williams

Gretchen has received awards as a songwriter from artists as diverse as Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, Patty Loveless, George Strait, Bryan Adams and Faith Hill

She has risen to the top of her craft by writing songs that explore the deep corners of life with empathy and integrity. Her music touches on dark realities, yet ultimately it is profoundly beautiful and uplifting

Having been in near-constant motion touring for the past two years, headlining her own sold-out tours, she’s supported country and folk legends Guy Clark, Arlo Guthrie and John Prine (duetting with the latter at several shows)

This year’s release of her much-anticipated new album, Blackbirds, includes such impressive new material to showcase and this really is the ideal time to catch the marvellous Gretchen Peters in concert
