  Thursday, July 23rd, Grant Peeples 7:30PM

I had heard Grant's music trough his recordings over a period of years and then had the opportunity to see him in person at the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival in 2013 and his live performance offered more than his recordings.

After spending more than a decade in Central America, Grant Peeples returned to the States to record his record Pawnshop, an alt-country album that he’s selling on the “trust system” which means listeners send him $15 after they receive their copy from his website. Grant says "I’m a self-described LeftNeck, whose muse is the scrubland of the Florida Panhandle. That land; those people. I wrote a song one time called Liberal With A Gun." He is a self-described  “vegetarian that watches NASCAR, and  tree-hugger with a gun below the seat,”  Grant Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads. In 2014 he was the recipient of the Focus Foundation Award for Creative Excellence, which cited the “humor, compassion and wisdom of his songs,” as well as their "unflinching social insight and cultural acuity.” Third Coast Magazine’s John Conquest says “Peeples is unusually literate, unusually honest. And the only songwriter I have ever called ‘ruthless.’” Grant has made seven studio records. Including a trilogy produced by Gurf Morlix. His newest record, “A Congress of Treasons,” will be released in January of 2016.

Music will start at 7:30 and I am requesting a $15.00 donation with all proceeds going to Grant. For information and reservations please call (530) 753-3472 or email wjwagman@dcn.org.
