Go See Gretchen gig

Event ended

Formed only in September of 2006, the two piece act, consisting of Julie Davies and Meg Atkins, is throwing a more unusual sound into the Gloucestershire music mix.

Inspired by less conventional American artists including Gillian Welch, David Rawlings and Ryan Adams, Go See Gretchen’s country, folk with a twist of bluegrass sounds can clearly be heard in their hypnotic sweet melodies, along with a hint of Southern drawl.

Their repertoire of self-penned material is ever-growing, while covers of tracks including Dolly Parton’s ‘Jolene’ and Old Crow Medicine Show’s ‘Cocaine Habit’ do the original artists’ justice.

In their short history, Go See Gretchen started out busking on the mean streets of Cheltenham and Gloucester – and can still be found drawing in the crowds – as well as playing several of the county’s open mic nights, including the monthly night at Gloucester’s Guildhall Arts Centre and at the The Royal Oak in Gretton on a Wednesday.

Their first supporting gig this month will see the duo, with Julie Davies on vocals and rhythm guitar and Meg Atkins on lead guitar and vocals, playing at The Cotswold Inn in Cheltenham. The headline act for the night is three piece rock ‘n’ roll cum country The Johnny Duff Band, playing as part of the pub’s regular Saturday night line-up of live music.

After drifting from band to band over the years, Go See Gretchen’s talented musicians are currently aiming to gain regular slots on the county’s vibrant live music scene, and we – for one – are hoping to see the alternative duo get the attention they deserve.
