Baby Gramps: Steel Guitar and Wordsmith


Baby Gramps is a piece of living history here in the Northwest, and one who is well respected throughout the country. The first time I saw him was last summer, at the Northwest String Summit - I was instantly hooked into his distinct style, his rhythmic contortions, and his ear-bending sense of humor...all conveyed through a beat up steel guitar and a weathered voice belting out rhymes, melodies, and palindromes.

Baby Gramps is someone not only to be heard, but to be seen -- hence his 2 videos and his DVD. A characteristic clip gives a taste to the new listener.

Check him out...
