Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter John Grant has earned a reputation as one of the most expressive voices of our time. As a singer-song-writer he has exquisite command of language, as a live performer, undoubtedly up there with the best.
In this rare stripped–back live show, John will perform as a duo playing songs from across his celebrated career.
Opening for John Grant, singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson has been called “one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of his generation,” by The New York Times. His music is heavily influenced by such artists as Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and the Everly Brothers, undoubtedly having an hand in developing his unique voice that is at once rock and country, then pop and folk.
We are stoked to have Teddy return to Bath Festival with his newest album Heartbreaker Please, released spring 2020.
