Grant Peeples and Sam Steffen

advance sale
Ticket Price: $17.50 / $22.50 day of show


Sam Steffen is a Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter whose songs are the torch-wood for a new generation of folk music. Inspired by the best stuff in the tradition, Sam’s songs aim to keep the human spirit alive and kicking. A versatile musician and skilled finger-picker, Sam is at heart a storyteller, and a prolific one. His album “Words, Words, Words” has featured regularly on WXPN’s “The Folk Show” hosted by Ian Zolitor, who recently selected Sam to represent Philadelphia’s “DJ’s choice” slot on the main stage at the 2018 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference in Stamford, Connecticut. Sam has been writing songs for almost a decade now, and has a vast arsenal of original music that ranges from the personal to the political. His songs have featured in academic lectures, political protests, worship services, bars, restaurants, coffeehouses, concert venues, festivals, street corners, weddings, funerals, and living rooms. He currently lives in Philadelphia with his fiance and dog.



A self-described “tree-hugger that watches NASCAR, and Buddhist with a gun below the seat,” Grant Peeples is known for his axe-sharp socio-political tunes, raucous humor and heart-gigging ballads. His shows are a roiling mix of funny stuff and not-funny stuff. He doesn’t do a lot of lo-ooove songs. When appropriate…he’s been known to play a few ‘off-color’ tunes. Grant has made ten studio records, three live recordings and two poetry books. Gurf Morlix, who has produced Lucinda Williams, Mary Gauthier, Ray Wiley Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen, and Slaid Cleaves—has produced four of Grant’s Records, including his most recent, “Settling Scores Vol II” (2018)​


Grant is the recipient of the Focus Foundation Award for Creative Excellence, which cited the “humor, compassion and wisdom of his songs,” and their “unflinching social insight and cultural acuity.” Grant tours coast to coast, and is a regular performer at The Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, the 30A Songwriters Festival, and The Florida Folk Festival. January 2019 marked a second tour in The Netherlands, where described him “…a pure storyteller, in the best American folk tradition…” and his show “…one of those gems that you will remember for a long time…”
