Grace Petrie’s unique takes on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered, have won over an army of loyal fans across the alternative, folk, political and comedy scenes.
She’s toured to arenas with Frank Turner, supported comedians Robin Ince, Josie Long and Hannah Gadsby, and has done a prestigious live session on the BBC Radio 2 Jo Whiley Show.
Her frequent festival appearances have included Latitude and Cambridge Folk Festival. In 2019 she played to a packed The Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival followed by sold out dates across her October ’19 tour.
Her current album, ‘Queer As Folk’, was released in Sept ’18 and was a Mojo magazine top 10 Folk Album of the Year.
In October 2020 she takes to the road with a band line-up for the first time with Grace Petrie & The Resistance Band.
‘She’s the urgent, pulsing, compassionate talent this world desperately needs.’ The Observer
‘She writes the sort of songs you want to pin the lyrics of on your bedroom wall, or on the office door, to remind you and everyone else who might read them what is important and true’ Buzz Magazine
