Monk At Nite Presents: Grant Peeples
Friday September 27 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$15 – $20
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.
His shows are a roiling mix of funny stuff and not-funny stuff. He doesn’t do a lot of lo-ooove songs. When appropriate…he’s been known to play a few ‘off-color’ tunes. He has made ten studio records, three live recordings and two poetry books.
We are very excited to bring Grant back to Gainesville and we know that you’re going to love this show! Check out some of his amazing talent on this sampler video:
