One of the ACMA favorites….welcome back songwriter and poet extraordinaire, Grant Peeples!!
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, along with 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…”
Grant released a new record in February 2023… A Murder of Songs. Congratulations!!
Opening the show is David Hintz. David is a founding ACMA member and singer/songwriter. He has been actively writing and performing his own music and covers since high school. He and Grant Peeples in one show create a perfect pairing! Hintz describes his lyrics as being a reflection of real life experiences with everything from love won and lost, online dating, satire, religion, and politics. The ACMA is fortunate to have this calibre of musician in our own back yard. Take a look at his SW Florida schedule and go take a listen. You will be glad you did.
