Western Music Concert
Kerry Grombacher plays guitar and writes and performs contemporary folk and western songs. In the spirit of the troubadours of old, he paints vivid portraits and tells fascinating stories that are set in the landscape where hes worked and toured, from his home on New Orleans Bayou St. John to the desert Southwest, and up to Montana and the Northwest forests. Drawing on over forty years experience playing music, Grombachers work explores the boundaries of musical genres, and he frequently mixes traditions: cowboy songs written as mambos, polkas or in the Cajun idiom; a piece, inspired by a photograph, that combines spoken word verses and a melodic chorus; a blues-rumba written in the obscure chiastic form; and songs written in both Spanish and English. Grombacher's songs and stories reflect a love of this country and a deep knowledge of its history and its people.
