Red Grape Management is very proud to represent the following artists. Here’s some very brief info on each but for full information please use the drop down menu above.
Peggy Seeger is one of the iconic voices of British and American folk music. Now in her 80s, her contribution to the world of folk is without parallel. Peggy’s family connections are impeccable in folk, classical and pop music. She is daughter to avant-garde composer Ruth Crawford Seeger, sister to Mike and Pete Seeger, wife to Ewan MacColl who wrote First Time Ever I Saw Your Face for her and with whom she had three children and now grandmother to a fourth generation of successful musicians. She is well known for her evocative renditions of Anglo-American folksongs and for her activist song writing, especially in the field of feminism. ‘Gonna Be an Engineer’ and ‘The Ballad of Springhill’ were ground breaking songs that continue to be relevant in the 21st century.
Jake Morley doesn’t play guitar like anyone else; with the guitar on his lap, he smashes out drum beats on it while tapping it very fast to create a totally unique sound. Jake’s reputation as a charismatic performer have long been recognised by his early fans, but national audiences are building quickly and radio support has come from Radio 2, BBC 6Music and more than 40 UK local radio stations. 2016 saw the release of his second album, ‘The Manual’.
Hafdis Huld may look as sweet as pie but Iceland’s premier acoustic artist has a wicked line in understated scorn and a vibrant streak that keeps the proceedings refreshingly off-balance. Her international profile has grown rapidly and she now has fans in over 65 countries around the world and over 11 million Spotify streams. She regularly updates her Facebook and Twitter followers with the goings-on around her isolated cottage situated on the side of an Icelandic mountain.
Colin Vearncombe aka Black
Colin Vearncombe, otherwise known as Black, who tragically died in January 2016, was one of the best songwriters of his generation. His last album, 2015’s ‘Blind Faith’, provided him with some of the best reviews of his life. His voice always retained its rich warmth and his skill at telling universal truth in song was unparalleled.
