Patty Griffin Tickets

Patty Griffin tickets - Patty Griffin Tour

Patty Griffin Tour Schedule

Patty Griffin has been one of the premiere singer-songwriters and musicians of the past two decades plus, and is one of the most respected and beloved folk musicians in the world. She does much more than just churn out folk music, her style blends Americana, alternative country, gospel, bluegrass, folk, and more and she constantly releases some of the most interesting music the industry has seen in years. Patty Griffin has long been revered for her stunning live show which has won her fans all over the world. Her powerful voice and emotive songs have separated her from the crowded field of independent singer-songwriters and allowed her to become one of the most in demand performers on the road today. Maybe you have listened to her albums or even just heard her music on television shows but you have no real idea of the power of Patty Griffin's songs until you have heard them performed live.

Patty Griffin is embarking on a North American tour and StubHub provides you with access to tickets for every stop. Her first scheduled show is on May 15th at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas followed by a performance at Lincoln Theater in Washington, D.C. on June 3rd. On June 5th Patty Griffin will hit the stage at Town Hall in New York prior to a June 10th show at House of Blues in Boston. On June 15th Patty Griffin will perform at State Theatre in Portland, Maine before wrapping up the mini tour at Calvin Theatre in Northampton, Massachusetts on June 17th. If you cannot make any of Patty Griffin's scheduled 2014 concerts be sure to keep checking back on StubHub to see when she will be performing near you.


About the Artist

Hailing from Old Town, Main, Patty Griffin was the youngest of seven siblings, and grew up listening to her mother sing old music standards around the house. Influenced by music greats like Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, and Rickie Lee Jones, Patty Griffin bought her first guitar for 50 dollars when she was sixteen and began writing her own songs. Although she showed immense talent at a young age, she never considered a career as a professional musician. She moved to Boston after a brief stint in Florida, and married her husband, who encouraged her to pursue her passion. The marriage was short-lived, and after her 1992 divorce she began singing her songs of love, life, and heartbreak in coffee shops around the Boston area. She recorded a short demo tape, and was courted by A&M Records after a scout caught one of her intimate performances. Working with A&M Records, Patty Griffin fine-tuned her demo to highlight her folksy minimalism, and the hard work resulted in her debut album, Living With Ghosts, which was released in 1996. Living With Ghosts, along with her 1998 follow-up Flaming Red which blended her Americana-tinged tunes with some more up-tempo rock and roll numbers, began to draw comparisons between Griffin and fellow female musicians of the genre like Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, and Alanis Morrisette. After her third album, Silver Bell, went unreleased by A&M Records, Griffin's contract was terminated and she began collaborating with Dave Matthews' label ATO Records, with whom she released four more albums, 1000 Kisses, A Kiss in Time, Impossible Dream, and Children Running Through.


Breakthrough

Patty Griffin first achieved big time success with her album Children Running Through which won Best Album from the Americana Music Association and also resulted in Griffin winning Artist of the Year. The album also debuted at number 34 on Billboard's Top 200 charts, her highest debut to date and firmly established Patty Griffin as one of the top folk acts in the world. A few years later her 2011 album Downtown Church explored some new styles for Griffin and won her the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Gospel Album.


The Experience

You have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally as the lights lower you begin to see Patty Griffin taking the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as Ingrid picks up her guitar and approaches the mic. A hush falls over the crowd as Ingrid thanks them and launches into a fan favorite like Living with Ghosts, Flaming Red, 1,000 Kisses, Impossible Dream, Children Running Through, Downtown Church, Amrican Kid, or Silver Bell. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. Always one to surprise the crowd, perhaps Patty Griffin sprinkles in some new songs throughout the set, or decides to play some cover songs. This is your chance to see one of the hottest indie folk singers on the scene today and she definitely exceeds expectations. Wherever and whenever she performs, Patty Griffin has an ability to connect with the audience and seduce with her voice that is not always found in modern pop music. Do not miss the chance to see Patty Griffin when she hits your town.


Trivia

In addition to her career in music, Patty Griffin has also dabbled in acting and has appeared in the movies Elizabethtown and Cremaster 2.
