This year marks Focal Point's 40th year of existence,
Ben Bedford & Tim Grimm are The Tall Trees!
Ben Bedford has proven
himself to be a truly inspired and
talented storyteller. A true son of the
heartland, Bedford dips into the deep
inkwell of classic American literature
and writes with the ‘old soul’ quality of
his literary idols.-Tim Grimm a
musician, actor & poet walks the fine
line between folk and
country, while maintaining a strong
footing in tradition. We hear the rural
rumblings that have shaped his life, but
are also invited in to see a bigger picture,
like so much of his work.
John Bolduan hails from
St. Louis, Missouri, USA, but has lived
in Spain for the past several years,
broadening his musical language. His
first album is entitled "Can't Fight Fire
with a Match". It features lively
melodies, heartfelt lyrics and tasteful
fingerstyle guitar licks that border on
virtuoso while remaining remarkably
pleasant to the casual listener
Songbird Cafe is a St. Louis-based concert series with singer-songwriters performing their material in a stripped-down, intimate, in-the-round performance space. You're gonna love this listening experience. Many stories will be told; many songs will be sung. Doors open at 6:45 PM
Marshall Chapman and Tommy Womack will grace the stage from Nashville
Charlie King is a musical storyteller and political satirist. He has been at the heart of American folk music for half a century and has been writing songs for the past 40 years.
