Grant Peeples is a compelling and gritty performer; his fresh, honest, incisive, and eloquent songs command your attention. He’s an original writer with a strong political awareness, writing for the little guys downtrodden by the world in the rush for ever greater prosperity. Grant Peeples will perform a virtual concert for WSLR+Fogartyville at 7pm on Monday, May 18th.
Grant Peeples virtual concert
It is not a Facebook live event, where just anyone can ‘stop by.’ It is viewed through the ‘Zoom’ program and all you do is make your donation, then receive the link to get in the show. The show is exclusive to WSLR+Fogartyville patrons and Grant’s fans in the Sarasota area. The minimum suggested donation is $10. Here is the link to reserve a seat.
Expect great sound and video quality as Grant is working closely with Pete Winters of Winterstone Sound in Tallahassee to bring you an excellent online concert experience. There will be songs and stories—-familiar tunes and some brand new.
A self-described “tree-hugger that watches NASCAR, and Buddhist with a gun below the seat,” 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. January 2019 marked a second tour in The Netherlands, where FolkForum.nl described him as “…a pure storyteller, in the best American folk tradition…” and his show “…one of those gems that you will remember for a long time…”
