Tim Grimm


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.
