BABY GRAMPS with PIPER REVA at the Conway Muse
Baby Gramps is a high energy humorously entertaining performer with an endless repertoire. Gramps' voice is somewhere between Popeye the Sailor and a didgeridoo. He plays acoustic antique resonator National Steel guitars, and sings his own unique arrangements of rags, jazz, & blues songs from the 20's & 30's, folksongs, and many originals with wordplay, humor, and throat singing. Baby Gramps appeals to a wide range of audiences from folk to jamband to punk to old timey traditional and to kids of all ages. Venues he performs at vary from intimate coffeehouses and pubs, to large concert halls, theaters, and festivals across the States, Canada, Europe, and Australia.
According to an article in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine, Baby Gramps is acknowledged as one of the top 50 most influential musicians in the last 100 years along with Ray Charles, Jelly Roll Morton, John Cage, Bill Frisell, Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, The Wailers, The Ventures, Sound Garden, and Pearl Jam. He is credited with making Seattle audiences aware of old blues and novelty songs that the rest of the world has mostly forgotten.
Baby Gramps toured Australia, England, and Ireland as part of the Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs, and Chanteys CD Concert Tour with Tim Robbins (actor), Marianne Faithful, Martha and Rufus Wainright, Jenny Muldaur, Lou Reed, The Watersons, Martin Carthy and Eliza, Suzanne Vega, Ralph Steadman, and many other internationally know performers. The Rogues Gallery CD, produced by Johnny Depp and Hal Wilner in connection with The Pirates of the Caribbean film, landed Baby Gramps on the David Letterman Show.

Piper Reva plays a hand-painted guitar and sings with the salt and grit of a jaded gypsy-meets-jesus. Classy, Sassy, Soul-Soaked and Sultry, She's gonna knock your socks off and suck your toes with a song.
"To describe what appears to capture sheer spontaneity itself… I sensed through the work that the artist has a deep, abiding and ongoing love affair with the unrehearsed and torrid aspects of emotional roller coasters. All in all an interesting and eclectic compilation, always beguiling whatever it was that I expected next."– Robert Ritter, Existentialist / Micanopy, Florida
