Nanci Griffith To Discuss New Album At The Grammy Museum

Legendary Singer-Songwriter Sits Down for an Intimate Conversation About The Loving Kind

On June 8, 2009, The GRAMMY Museum will host GRAMMY-winning songwriting legend Nanci Griffith as she discusses her new album, The Loving Kind (Rounder), kicking off the Museum’s new public program series, “The Drop,” it was announced today.

Before an intimate audience of 200 in the Museum’s GRAMMY Sound Stage, Griffith will answer Santelli’s questions about the inspirations, songwriting, collaboration, and studio experience behind The Loving Kind. Following the interview, Griffith will take questions from the audience and sign copies of the album.

Following eighteen critically-acclaimed albums, The Loving Kind – to be released June 9, 2009 on Rounder Records – is Griffith’s first studio album of original and contemporary cover material since 2005’s Hearts In Mind. Griffith’s classic sound – folk/country melodies built around stories that tackle big subjects delivered with the artist’s signature vocal style – returns in full bloom on the album, her most politically outspoken release in years.

“The Drop: Nanci Griffith” will take place at 8pm in the GRAMMY Sound Stage, on the second floor of The GRAMMY Museum. Doors open at 7:30pm. All proceeds benefit The GRAMMY Museum. Tickets are $14.95 ($12 for Museum Members) and go on sale Monday, May 18, 2009 (Friday, May 15, 2009 for Museum Members).
