Folk, film, and farm characterize worlds inhabited by Americana artist Tim Grimm.

The Chicago Sun-Times named Grimm "Best Discovery in Roots/Americana Music" in 2000. Likened to Johnny Cash, Woodie Guthrie, and Bruce Springsteen, Grimm's rich voice eloquently details everyday rural life. Grimm says, "One of the things I've always loved about true rural people is that you had to be a jack of all trades...to men that, cobble that." Similarly, Grimm cobbled together a career in music, television, and film that gives him a sublime narrative style. After several years in California, he returned to the inspiring woods of his youth to raise his family. Grimm's Saint Louis trip included performances at the High Valley Cafe House and the Eliot Chapel.
