Tim Grimm is a bit of a Renaissance man in the performing arts world. He has for the past 15 years blended his love for songwriting, travel and the storytelling of acting (theatre, film and television) into music.
He’s had a No. 1 folk song on the national charts.
This Saturday, he’s coming to Seymour, where Grimm will play a two-hour set at the historic Owen Theatre in the city’s downtown, beginning at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door.
Doors open at 6 p.m.
After several years in the 1990s working in Los Angeles (where he co-starred for two seasons on the NBC drama “Reasonable Doubts,” worked on “Clear And Present Danger” with Harrison Ford and appeared in several films and television projects), Grimm returned home to Indiana.
He grew up in the woods and in the small-town settings of southern Indiana, the 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.”
Grimm now lives with his wife on 80 acres close to where he grew up. His songs are full of the rural rumblings that have shaped his life — rich with descriptive details, sung with warmth and intimacy — recognizing the inextinguishable national romance with the idea of the family farm and the vanishing landscape of rural America.
