Nanci Griffith's musical journey has taken her from folk and country roots, to her own brand of “folkability”; from Austin’s Hole In The Wall bar to New York’s Carnegie Hall, Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry and London’s Royal Albert Hall. Griffith has penned such classics as ‘Gulf Coast Highway’ (duet with Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson), ‘Love At The Five And Dime’ and ‘Outbound Plane’. In turn, she was the first to record Julie Gold’s Grammy winning classic ‘From A Distance’. She has also been honoured with five Grammy nominations, three as a solo artist (winning once) and twice for performances on albums by The Chieftains (winning once).
