With engaging style, his striking arrangements of traditional songs, rich voice and warm Geordie humour will bring delight to ‘the Bairns’ at the Tolbooth.

“Jed Grimes has a spectacular musical pedigree. He is not only a wonderful songwriter, but also someone with a charismatic quality that shines right through his music. His comfort and maturity stand out a mile: inventive and thoughtful.” Geoff Wall/Folk On T
