Tim is an award-winning songwriter and actor on stage, screen and television. After several years working in Los Angeles, Tim returned home to Indiana. He grew up in the woods and small town settings of southern Indiana, son of schoolteachers and grandson of farmers. Tim now lives with his wife and sons on an 80 acre farm close to where he grew up. His songs are full of the rural rumblings that have shaped his life-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.

In 2007, Grimm put together a concept cd with several of the Midwest’s finest songwriter’s- Krista Detor, Carrie Newcomer, Tom Roznowski, and Michael White. The recording, Wilderness Plots, was drawn from the short stories of noted author, Scott Russell Sanders. Two EMMY nominated PBS programs evolved with the music and songs.

Tim continues perform around the US and Europe. He also hosts tours to Ireland and the Netherlands, and hosts a music series and theater productions in and around Indiana. He's produced 11 cds to critical acclaim since returning to Indiana. His latest, The Turning Point, was released in 2013.

Krista Detor is also based in Indiana, tours the US and Europe, and has collaborated with Tim on projects, primary of which was the Emmy-nominated Wilderness Plots.

Musical styles and influences abound in Krista’s writing. Her songs are vignettes, telling stories of time and experience. Her quiet musical intensity has been compared to that of Leonard Cohen and Laura Nyro. She has shared stages with Joan Armatrading, Suzanne Vega, Aaron Neville, Loudon Wainwright, Luka Bloom, Slaid Cleaves, Peter Mulvey, The Wailing Jennys, Jakob Dylan, Carrie Newcomer, Lucy Kaplansky, and John Gorka, among others.

Wanna know what the word, "folklore" means?

by phylum

1846, coined by antiquarian William J. Thoms (1803-85) as an Anglo-Saxonism (replacing popular antiquaries) and first published in the "Athenaeum" of Aug. 22, 1846, from folk + lore. This word revived folk in a modern sense of "of the common people, whose culture is handed down orally," and opened up a flood of compound formations, eg. folk art (1921), folk-hero (1899), folk-medicine (1898), folk-tale (1891), folk-song (1847), folk-dance (1912). Folk-music is from 1889; in reference to the branch of modern popular music (originally associated with Greenwich Village in New York City) it dates from 1958.
