American Grammy award winning singer songwriter and musician Patty Griffin will take to the Spirit Store stage this November 21 to preform her new album “American Kid” along with hits from her first album ‘Children Running Through’.

Known for her stripped down song writing style centred on the folk music genre, her songs have been covered by a host of musicians including Emmylou Harris, Ellis Paul, Rory Block and the Dixie Chicks.

Her new album ‘American Kid’ much of which Griffin says “was written to honour my father,” returns to typical Patty Griffin territory, which is to say that it features a group of remarkably powerful, personal and unpredictable songs arranged and performed in a style that doesn’t entirely repeat anything she’s done on her previous albums while drawing on all of them.

Tickets are €25 and available online at www.spiritstore.ie or from McAteers.
