A folk singer, songwriter and activist from Leicester, UK, she has been writing, recording and touring relentlessly for ten years. Her unique takes on life, love and politics, and the warmth and wit with which they are delivered, have won over audiences everywhere, across the alternative, folk, political and comedy scenes.

She has racked up tour supports with Emmy the Great and Billy Bragg, and in 2019 supported Frank Turner on his UK arena tour. She has made her mark in the comedy scene regularly supporting comedians Robin Ince and Josie Long on tour and she has also collaborated with some of the most respected names in folk, including Leon Rosselson, Roy Bailey and Peggy Seeger. She regularly tours sold out shows across the UK and has appeared at an eclectic genre-crossing mix of festivals Latitude, Musicport, Blissfields, Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Greenbelt, Cambridge Folk Festival and in 2019 played The Acoustic Stage at Glastonbury Festival.

Through all of this she has quietly become one of the most respected songwriters working in the UK today. She has been a frequent guest on BBC Radio 4’s the Now Show, has appeared on Channel 4’s Random Acts and has been featured in The Guardian, Diva Magazine and The Independent On Sunday and in 2019 is nominated as Musician Of The Year in the Diva Awards.

In May 2018 a Kickstarter campaign for her first full studio album, after five previous available-at-gig-only albums. She raised £10,000 in just 24 hours and went on to achieve £18.000 in the two week campaign. The album, ‘Queer As Folk’, was released in September 2018 and has gone on to be named a top 10 Folk Album of 2018 by Mojo magazine.

Press:

‘She offers hope and solidarity, born out of absolute conviction and with no trace of empty sloganeering….this wake-up call is one to be both welcomed and wholeheartedly embraced.’
fRoots

‘Petrie has delivered a personal and political statement of the highest quality in a magnificent tradition.’
Morning Star

‘An album of personal and political power, passion and perception, it is hugely persuasive proof that Petrie most deservedly earns her place at the table.’
Folk Radio

‘She’s the urgent, pulsing, compassionate talent this world desperately needs.’
Deborah Frances-White writing in The Observer

‘Probably the most intelligently crafted album you’ll hear this year’
****R2

‘Just when you thought that what folk music needs right now is a strident left-wing female causing a bit of carnage, here’s Grace Petrie.’
**** Mojo
