BIO:

A self-described “tree-hugger that watches NASCAR,” Grant Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads.

He is the recipient of the Focus Foundation Award for Creative Excellence, which cited the “humor, compassion and wisdom of his songs,” and their “unflinching social insight and cultural acuity.” Grant tours coast to coast, and is a regular performer at The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, the 30A Songwriters Festival, and The Florida, Folk Festival.   In June he makes his debut at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival.

He has been a keen observer of the American condition for five decades, ever since a friend introduced him to the music of Bob Dylan. Through many years on the road, running a night club/music venue in Tallahassee, and after a ten-year stint on an isolated island off the coast of Nicaragua, Peeples turned to writing with a vengeance. He wrote poetry and songs that turned a critical eye on American culture and identity, the very definition of contemporary folk music.

January 2019 marked a second tour in The Netherlands, where FolkForum.nl described him “…a pure storyteller, in the best American folk tradition…” and his show “…one of those gems that you will remember for a long time…”

Also performing will be Sara Stovall, a multi-talented violinist/vocalist/songwriter who often accompanies Grant as he tours Florida. Her full time musical gig is with the popular alternative folk group Passerine out of Sarasota.   Sara’s violin and background vocals add not only musical body but deep interpretation to Grant’s tunes, whether she is fiddlin’ to ‘Sunshine State’ or ‘Revolutionary Reel’ or adding darker tones to songs like ‘Dear Sadie’ or ‘Pitchforks and Torches.’
