Grant Peeples to Perform at Fogartyville with Musical Guests Sara Stovall & Roy Schneider

Grant Peeples is a compelling and gritty performer; his fresh, honest, incisive, and eloquent songs command your attention.  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’s musical guests for the evening will include Sara Stovall of the Sarasota folk-rock band Passerine, and Fort Myers singer-songwriter Roy Schneider of the American duo Reckless Saints. The concert will take place at the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Friday, November 5 at 8pm. Tickets are $15 for members/$18 for non-members.  Advance tickets are available online at WSLR or by calling 941-894-6469.

Grant tours coast to coast, and has been a regular performer at The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, the 30A Songwriters Festival, and The Florida, Folk Festival. January 2019 marked his 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…” 

This finger-in-your-eye styled songwriter and 7th generation Floridian is a former expatriate. He spent 11 years on a tiny island off the coast of Nicaragua, where he installed the island’s first flushing toilet.  He returned in 2006 to a very different homeland. Much of his songwriting is a response to what he found when he returned.
