The Tall Trees - Tim Grimm and Ben Bedford with Diederik van Wassenaer on fiddle
Tim Grimm and Ben Bedford- two highly acclaimed Midwestern songwriters, accompanied by the very talented (and very tall) Diederik van Wassenaer on fiddle. An evening with three remarkable artists will make for a brilliant evening at Comfy Couch Concerts.
Tim Grimm has spent years on stage performing in movies, TV series and plays. He brings an actors feel of storytelling and drama to his songs and paints portraits of the strength, determination and resolve of our midwest neighbors. These are people you may not know but when Tim is done they will be people you recognize. He is one of Comfy Couch concerts most popular performers so be sure to get your tickets early.
Ben Bedford was named one of the "50 most significant folk singer-songwriters of the past 50 years" by Rich Warren of WFMT radio in Chicago. Bedford has performed all over the United States, and has completed three European concert tours.
His music is described (on his website) as "narrative folk music that introduces the characters of America. ... His songs include intriguing sketches of America, its individuals, their victories and their struggles."
Accompanying the two singers will be classically trained violinist Diederik van Wassenaer. This Amsterdam native, and graduate of Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, does not hold a firm, classical view of the role of violin. Diederik soaked in the sounds of bluegrass in Nashville and you will be pleasantly surprised when you hear the freedom of expression from this fiddle player.
