Twice Grammy-nominated, CMA Song Of The Year winner (for the groundbreaking “Independence Day”), Gretchen Peters has cut her own artistic path, touring continually in North America and Europe and releasing nine critically acclaimed albums on the way. She has accumulated accolades as a songwriter for artists as diverse as Etta James, Trisha Yearwood, Bonnie Raitt, The Neville Brothers, George Strait, Bryan Adams and Faith Hill. Her latest album, Hello Cruel World, described by NPR's All Things Considered as “the album of her career”, appeared in numerous Best of 2012 lists including No Depression, and Performing Songwriter. Of her music, the Associated Press said, “this is not jukebox music – the stuff that exists to fill in the pauses in conversation. This IS the conversation.”

The lineup for the “Blackbirds” tour is: Barry Walsh – piano, accordion & vocals; Christine Bougie – lap steel, electric guitar & drums; and newest addition Conor McCreanor on bass. Gretchen said “I’m really looking forward to hearing these great musicians flesh out the arrangements on new songs and old ones”.

Venue: Malt Rooom – allocated seating
