The Folk Show Road Show: The Tall Trees, with a preview of Joe Jencks

Nov 15, 2016

Tim Grimm, Ben Bedford, and Diederik Van Wassenaer.
   The Tall Trees are Tim Grimm and Ben Bedford– two highly acclaimed Midwestern songwriters, joined by the very tall Diederik van Wassenaer on fiddle.

Tim and Ben have well established solo careers,  and Dierderik performs in multiple bands, so a Tall Trees concert is a rare treat. We were lucky to capture their performance at the intimate and acoustically outstanding Center for Well-Being in Lemont.  The concert was on May 7, 2016, part of the Acoustic Brew series.  Tim and Ben traded lead vocals on their own songs,  and each took a turn in a solo arrangement of a few songs.  All three joined in on vocal harmonies many times during the evening. 

If you love insightful and powerful original songs,  I'm confident you'll be glad you spent the time listening to the Tall Trees.

A special thanks to recording engineer Greg E. Miller, who was at the console that evening. Greg designed the system that faithfully captured the audio without interfering with the all-acoustic experience for the live audience.  Greg donated both his time and equipment to this project.
