[July 17, 2012]
-- Singer-songwriter Tim Grimm will present an evening of
original songs of the rural Midwest at the Hickory Ridge Concert
Series on Saturday at 7:30 at the Dickson Mounds Museum.
Grimm walks the fine line between folk and country, while
maintaining a strong footing in tradition. Listeners hear the rural
rumblings that have shaped his life but are also invited in to a
bigger picture. His songs are rich with descriptive details and sung
with warmth and intimacy, recognizing the inextinguishable national
romance with the idea of the family farm and the vanishing landscape
of rural America. Critics searching for comparisons most often cite
Johnny Cash, Woody Guthrie and (Nebraska era) Bruce Springsteen.
Grimm is an award-winning songwriter and actor on stage and screen.
After several years working in Los Angeles, where he co-starred for
two seasons on the NBC drama "Reasonable Doubts" and appeared in
several films, he returned home to Indiana. He now lives with his
wife and sons on an 80-acre farm close to where he grew up.
