BLUES | Baby Gramps


Performing for more than 50 years, Seattle-based Baby Gramps has amazed audiences across the world. His unique brand of rags, blues, labor songs, and vaudeville originals have led him to be called "The Salvador Dali of Folk Music." Playing an antique, resonator steel guitar, he flat and finger picks while "chording" with the back of his hand and elbow. Half street-performer, half stage-performer, he has played with Artis the Spoonman, Bela Fleck, and Phish. Seattle Metropolitan Magazine acknowledged him as one of the top-50 most influential artists in the last 100 years.

Baby Gramps plays Friday, August 29, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 6 p.m. Free.;
