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.
“Astonishingly good writing. . . Peters is at the very top of her game” (PopMatters)
