Baby Gramps - at the Conway Muse
Baby Gramps - Rags, jazz and blues from the 20's and 30's, with wordplay, humor and throat singing. The David Lynch cowboy of our times (Hank Williams on acid?)
Old-Time Salty Vaudevillian ~~ Live from Johnny Depp's Rogue's Gallery with tales from Australia and Italy.
"If you have never caught Baby Gramps live, this is your chance -- he's a performer with a style so distinctive you'll never forget it." He's been called "The Salvadore Dali of Folk Music".
Baby Gramps is a high energy humorously entertaining performer with an endless repertoire. 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. He 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.
