Grant Peeples & Passerine
Passerines distinctive sound combines vocal harmonies, the crisp rhythms of an acoustic guitar, the haunting voices of the fiddle and dobro (resonator slide guitar), the resonant lows of an acoustic bass. With inventive vocal harmonies and song-writing, supported by the sounds of acoustic strings, Passerine offers a fresh take on traditional folk and bluegrass music as well as a repertoire of original songs that range from sweet ballads to the edgier side of contemporary Americana.
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.
Grant 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.
