Gretchen Peters

Quite a few music venues in Nashville have a capacity bigger than the population of Glenarm, Northern Ireland, a seaside village about 30 miles north of Belfast. Nashville based songwriter and recording artist Ben Glover says growing up there was a good environment for a future performer.

A new Gretchen Peters album is always cause for celebration and contemplation. Dancing With The Beast, her ninth studio project, released this spring to rave reviews, is no exception. Peters is back home in Nashville after multiple tours that included the UK and Ireland. She brings her pensive, story-driven songs to the Franklin Theatre this Saturday night. The CD release show is her only local one of the year.
