Folk Concert Series Begins at White Gull with Tim Grimm

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Tim Grimm will be featured at the first of five concerts scheduled in the 32nd season of winter folk concerts at the White Gull Inn on Nov. 18. Tickets for the 8 pm concert are $17.

Grimm is a bit of a Renaissance man in the performing arts world. For the past 15 years, he has blended his love for songwriting, travel and the storytelling of acting (theater, film and television). His most recent recording, The Turning Point, produced the number one song on Folk Radio in 2014: “King of the Folksingers.” It was a particularly gratifying honor, given the song is a tribute to Grimm’s friend and musical icon, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott.

Grimm’s songs are full of the rural rumblings that have shaped his life – rich with descriptive details, and sung with warmth and intimacy. He has released nine albums and won awards for Best Discovery in Roots Americana Music from the Chicago Sun-Times and 2004 Male Artist of the Year from the Freeform American Roots DJ’s.

An optional fixed price dinner will be served at 6 pm. The menu includes Honey Ginger Braised Pork over Pumpkin Mushroom Risotto; Kale Salad with Carrot and Apple; and Browned Butter Pumpkin Cake.

The White Gull Inn folk concert series debuted in 1984, with monthly concerts November through April. Besides Grimm in November, future concerts will feature the bluegrass band Special Consensus on Dec. 9, folksingers and songwriters Johnsmith and Dan Sebranek on Jan. 13, Mipso on March 8 & 10, and String Symphony on April 6.

If still available, concert tickets can be purchased at the door, although many concerts sell out, so advance ticket purchase and reservations for the pre-concert dinners are recommended. For tickets and more information, call 920.868.3517 or visit
