Tim Grimm and Krista Detor
Saturday, Decebmer 17, 2016 at 7 p.m.
(Doors to the lobby open at 6:15)
Tim Grimm is a bit of a Rennaisance man in the performing arts world. For the past 15 years he has blended his love for songwriting and travel with acting in theatre, film and television. He has composed music for the theatre, most recently To Kill a Mockingbird at the Indianapolis Repertory Theatre, and also had a role in the play. He has toured and recorded with his friend Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, about whom the song “The King of The Folksingers,” the #1 song on the Folk DJ chart in January 2014, is based.
Krista Detor is a pianist and singer-songwriter whose music defies easy categorization. With her expressive, sultry voice, artful song crafting, and intelligent, heartfelt lyrics, Krista’s performances paint mental pictures of mystery and wonder that you won’t soon forget. Based in in Bloomington, she tours extensively throughout the U.S., Germany, Ireland and the Netherlands.
Tim and Krista have each performed multiple times at the Indy Folk Series — solo, with their bands, and for the past several years together at our very popular Holiday concerts. Join us for a magical evening with these amazing singer-songwriters, served up with a side of Holiday cheer!

About the Indy Folk Series
If you know the Indy Folk Series, you know it’s special: a listening room venue where artists deliver their best work and the audience is up close and personal; where the vibe is real and the sound is magnificent.
For fifteen years we’ve brought you the best of local, regional, and national artists. In celebration of our Sweet 16th Season, we welcome some of your favorite performers back to our stage to reconnect with old friends, share new songs, and leave you with vibrant, lasting memories.
