She has been part of Robert Plant’s Band of Joy, and The Sweet Harmony Travelling Revue, touring with Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings. Her songs have been recorded by Mary Chapin Carpenter, Emmylou Harris, Jessica Simpson, Dixie Chicks and Kelly Clarkson among many more. Mid March 2019 sees the release of her tenth album, and the two singles Where I come from and River have been warmly received by, among others, Rolling Stone magazine. Patty Griffin was born in Old Town in the state of Maine, and in the early nineties she sang and played in small cafés in the Boston area. It was here that A&M Records spotted her, and put out her debut album Living with Ghosts. The album sold over 200,000 copies and was followed up by the rocking Flaming Red in 1998. Patty Griffin has had her share of nominations for Grammies and AMA Awards, and in both 2010 and 2011, she won the Best Gospel Album and Best Traditional Gospel Album categories. That’s how broadly Patty Griffin’s talent reaches across the genres. At Tønder Festival we will hear her band and songs from the new, eponymous album and from her impressive back catalogue. Her only Danish festival concert in 2019.
