Folk singer, songwriter, and activist Grace Petrie has been writing, recording and touring relentlessly since she started to attract attention with her emotive anthem “Farewell to Welfare”, which perfectly captured the spirit of the new wave of dissent in austerity Britain.
She has racked up tour supports with Emmy the Great and Billy Bragg, and has also made her mark in the comedy scene supporting comedians Robin Ince and Josie Long. She’s appeared at Glastonbury four times, as well as an eclectic genre-crossing mix of festivals such as Latitude, Musicport, and Blissfields. Her unique take on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered have won over audiences everywhere, across the alternative, folk, political and comedy scenes. With the release of her latest album Queer As Folk in September last year, Petrie is at the top of her game and we can’t wait to welcome her to Larmer Tree.
