Grace Petrie - The 'Queer As Folk' Tour

Tickets - £12

Make way for protest singer, LGBTQ+ activist, folk singer, socialist and social commentator
Grace Petrie.
 
Smart, witty, a talented lyricist and an electrifying live performer, Grace Petrie 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!’ Given all of this, it’s no surprise she’s toured in support of Billy Bragg, toured for ten years as a self-sustaining DIY artist with virtually no mainstream media coverage and yet, when this May she announced a Kickstarter campaign for the recording of her first full studio album ‘Queer As Folk’, she reached the £10,000 target in twenty-four hours and almost doubled that amount by the end of the two week campaign.  

The album includes Grace’s take on traditional folk track 'An Old Man’s Tale', retitled 'A Young Woman’s Tale', a blistering cover of Richard Thompson’s 'Beeswing' and the show-stopping 'Back Tie', which challenges gender stereotyping in missive to her Year 11 self.
