Copenhagen Songwriters' Festival brings the biggest and busiest summer of my life to a close
Hello dear friends! What a summer 2018 has brought me. I have been lucky enough to find myself on stages from Nova Scotia to Copenhagen, and everywhere, including the Edinburgh Playhouse and Cambridge Folk Festival, in between. I have had a tremendously busy and fulfilling festival season that has been exhausting and exhilarating in equal measure. If you came to a show this summer, thanks for your support and for making it such a joyous couple of months for me.
I Made An Album
If you thought I might rest now, then it sucks to be you and indeed me, because no sooner am I returned from Denmark am I embarking on sending out hundreds of envelopes containing my NEW BLOODY ALBUM, pals! Earlier this year my Kickstarter campaign was very successfully funded and would you believe it, I've only gone and made the record. QUEER AS FOLK is available to PRE-ORDER NOW from HERE and also on the iTunes and it will be released on September 14th 2018.
I Made A Video
Yes I did, a video was made for Black Tie, the lead single from my new album, which is all about reclaiming your inner dapper butch style and shrugging off whatever expectations society has of you to wear or look or be anything at all. I am very grateful to Eric Revill-Dews of Bigger Boat Film for doing such a great job, and to the young people involved in the video, and most of all to Caitlin Field, Hannah James, Zoe Stewart, and Jasmine Kennedy who endured miming this song until their ears were almost bleeding. The video, which contains me ironically wearing a pink dress which has gone down a treat, can be seen here:
I'm Going On Tour
Because there is no rest for the wicked and I am nothing if not determined to ensure that the UK has absolutely had enough of me before too long, I'm taking off on an extensive UK and Ireland tour this October, singing songs from my new album as well as Classic Grace Petrie Hits 2005-2018. Please come and see me at one of these shows:
LEFTY CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!
I am returning to beautiful Bush Hall on December 23rd for the return of one of my most adored events of the year, Lefty Christmas and yes yes yes yes yes yes yes I KNOW it's only August but it's a bloody big room so I can't very well wait for the season of advent to begin before I tell you all about it. ***MY LONDON OCTOBER SHOW IS LONG SOLD OUT AND THIS IS THE ONLY LONDON DATE I WILL BE DOING FOR A CONSIDERABLE PERIOD*** so why not treat yourself with tickets to it which you can get HERE - if I can't convince you maybe this shameless picture can:
That's all I have to tell you for now but I'm sure I will be back to flog something else to you soon enough. Thanks as always for all your support
