To celebrate 25 years since her first UK performance, Gretchen Peters is headed back to our stages.

Planning a series of special appearances this Spring, the country singer will be packing-in a mixture of fixtures that range from full-band live performances to those in cosier settings that will promise “an intimate evening with Gretchen Peters”.

 

Her 2015 album, ‘Blackbirds’ was awarded International Album of the Year and Song of the Year by the UK Americana Association.

In 2021 she was awarded The Poets Award by the Academy of Country Music.

With a reputation for a prolific studio output, Peters released her most recent work, ‘The Night They Wrote the Song: The Songs of Mickey Newbury’ in 2020.

Praised by Rolling Stone as “mesmerizing”, the collection saw Peters take a deep dive into the catalogue of the late great American songwriter and offer her own enchanting spin on 12 classic cuts.

While fans wait for her much anticipated return to UK venues, Peters can confirm that she is currently working on a brand new live album release.

Recorded while on tour in the UK in 2019 with her band and an all-female Scottish string quartet, ‘The Show: Live from the UK’ will be released in 2022.
