Songs of protest

GRACE Petrie, a self-described protest singer, brings her brand of angry and informed music to Dorchester’s Corn Exchange on Friday 13th May.

Grace has performed widely across the alternative, folk, political and comedy scenes, supported comedian Hannah Gadsby, toured with comedy phenomenon The Guilty Feminist, has done a prestigious live session on the BBC Radio 2 Jo Whiley Show. She reached the top 40 in the UK album charts in autumn 2021 with her album Connectivity.

She will be accompanied on stage by long-time music collaborator, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Moss.

There is more music with a folk-roots background from the Gigspanner Big Band on Saturday 14th May, also at the Corn Exchange.
