Fresh from a successful UK arena tour supporting Frank Turner, Leicester-born protest singer, LGBTQ+ activist, folk singer, socialist and social commentator Grace Petrie announces her own headline tour through Spring 2019. Please see full tour details below. Smart, witty, a talented lyricist and an electrifying live performer, Grace can take the most hostile room and by the end of the night they will be singing along, “Stand up today that we might save tomorrow!

Grace has been writing, recording and touring relentlessly, racking up tour supports with Emmy the Great, Billy Bragg, Frank Turner and more, and has also made her mark in the comedy scene supporting comedians Robin Ince and Josie Long. She’s appeared at Glastonbury four times at the invitation of Billy Bragg, as well as an eclectic genre-crossing mix of festivals Latitude, Musicport, Bliss-fields, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Greenbelt and more including of course Cambridge Folk Festival. She has collaborated with some of the most respected names in folk, including Leon Rosselson, Roy Bailey and Peggy Seeger; quietly becoming one of the most respected songwriters working today.

A frequent guest on BBC Radio 4’s The Now Show, Grace has appeared on Channel 4’s Random Acts, had plays on BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio 2 and has been featured in The Guardian, The Independent On Sunday’s 2013 Pink List of influential LGBT figures; and been nominated for Diva Magazine’s 2018 Activist Award.
