Tim Grimm is a bit of a Rennaisance man in the performing arts world. He has for the past 20 years, blended his love for songwriting, travel, and the storytelling of acting (theatre, film and television). His most recent recording- GONE, was released in March 2021 and debuted at #1 Folk album for the month. It’s title song was released as a single in October, ’20 and ended up the #1 most played song on Folk radio for the year. Here’s one of the early reviews- that well sums up this essential recording-
“Tim Grimm is a songwriter’s songwriter and the truth of it is borne out utterly by his newest album, GONE. It’s the sort of record that only a veteran artist could make—the finishes and flourishes of an expert craftsman who knows how to properly and painfully edit, perhaps the most agonizing part of the creative process. He crafts cinematic moments that play out vividly as he illustrates the little struggles and glories that live in our mundane activities and they illumine our experiences of loss. When reviewing Tim Grimm’s oeuvre, one doesn’t witness radical stylistic leaps or chameleonic transformations. Rather, one observes a gifted artist operating ambitiously within his own niche. He’s been making his own way as a musician on the Americana landscape for close on 25 years as an artist who does it his own way. The rest be damned. He has that spark in him that all the great songwriters have. He’s the real deal.” – Alan Cackett
OPENING THE SHOW: Carmela Pedicini and David Brain (from Passerine) will open the show with a short set.
