Event

Tim Grimm
Tim Grimm 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. His recording, The Back Fields was named Best Americana Album in the 2006 Just Plain Folks Music Awards in Los Angeles (the largest and most diverse music awards in the world). Named 2000's "BEST DISCOVERY in Roots/Americana Music" by The Chicago Sun-Times,  and "2004 MALE ARTIST of The Year" by the Freeform American Roots DJs, his songs and performances have established him as a unique voice in Americana music.  Each of his past 5 recordings have reached the top of the Folk or American-roots charts. Grimm walks the fine line between folk and country, while maintaining a strong footing in tradition.  We hear the rural rumblings that have shaped his life, but we are also invited in to a bigger picture, as evident in so much of his work. Critics searching for comparisons most often cite Johnny Cash, Woody Guthrie and (Nebraska era) Bruce Springsteen.  Tim is an award-winning songwriter, and actor on stage and screen .  After several years working in Los Angeles (where he co-starred for 2 seasons on the NBC drama Reasonable Doubts and appeared in several films), Tim returned home to Indiana.  He grew up in the woods and small town settings of southern Indiana, son of schoolteachers and grandson of farmers, and his return home was a conscious choice to live a life of significance rather than one of "success'. He now lives with his wife and sons on an 80 acre farm close to where he grew up. Tim's songs are full of the rural rumblings that have shaped his liferich with descriptive details, and sung with warmth and intimacyrecognizing the inextinguishable national romance with the idea of the family farm and the vanishing landscape of rural America.  In 2007, Grimm put together a concept cd with several of the Midwest's finest songwriter's Krista Detor, Carrie Newcomer, Tom Roznowski, and Michael White. The recording, Wilderness Plots, was drawn from the short stories of noted author, Scott Russell Sanders, and explored the settling of the American Wilderness in the Ohio River Valley Region between The Revolutionary War and The Civil War. Two PBS programs have explored Wilderness Plots-- the first, a documentary on the story and song, and the second a full Wilderness Plots- In Concert (2012). Produced by WTIU in Bloomington, IN, both productions were nominated for EMMY AWARDS.
