April 7, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm$15
TIM GRIMM is a bit of a Renaissance man in the performing arts world. He has for the past 15 years blended his love for songwriting, travel, and the storytelling of acting (theatre, film and television). He is appearing her with son JACKSON GRIMM and fellow songwriter JON BROOKS.
Tim has toured and recorded with his friend, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, appeared with Harrison Ford in the film Clear and Present Danger, and has shared the stage with writer and poet Wendell Berry. Tim had the #1 song on Folk radio in 2016 with — WOODY’S LANDLORD, and the #1 song in 2014 — KING OF THE FOLKSINGERS. Grimm lives on 80 acres in southern Indiana, and has been called “The Poet Laureate of the rural Midwest”. His song THE LAKE was in the soundtrack for A WALK IN THE WOODS, starring Robert Redford. His latest release is A STRANGER IN THIS TIME– with The Family Band (his wife and both sons).
“Tim’s songwriting reminds me of Guy Clark. The songwriting is simple, straightforward yet full of poetry. It closely observes everyday life and distills the small moments of joy and pleasure. Grimm’s vocal style also reminds me of Guy Clark’s unassuming way of putting across a song. It’s a voice in service to the lyric….” -Richard Silverstein- Seattle

“I write songs to calm those who’ve looked into, and seen, what is in their hearts. I also write songs to terrify those who have not.” – Jon Brooks
