On a musical journey that began in 1982, Annie and Rod Capps have earned sincere praise for their songwriting and musicianship, with two albums topping the Folk-DJ charts and multiple Detroit Music Award nominations. Married in 1994, they’ve cultivated a symbiotic sound that reflects their deep and intuitive understanding of each other, delivering songs about broken things and poignant little ponderings with a rootsy vibe, a touch of twang and a soulful groove.
A returning favorite to the "Flying Cat" stage, Tim Grimm is an award-winning singer, songwriter, and actor on stage and screen. Tim and his wife Jan Lucas, who often performs with him, live on an 80-acre farm in southern Indiana. Many of Tim's songs -- rich with descriptive details, and sung with warmth, intimacy, and humor -- tell tales of farm life, relationships with neighbors and community, and rural Indiana. Together, Tim and Jan weave a tapestry of stories, songs and harmonies in a truly magical way.
He is a music presenter in his hometown of Columbus, IN, where for the past ten years he has hosted The Americana Music Series. He has composed music for the theatre, and continues to work as an actor in film and television, and on stage, most recently Good People, at Asolo Rep in Sarasota Florida . He performs in Festivals, in coffeehouses, in community centers and house concerts across the US, and for the past six years in Europe. He believes in the power of folk, in the spirit of tradition, and the value of culture. Michigan Folk Live has dubbed him, "The Poet Laureate of the rural Midwest."
Tim's song "KING OF THE FOLKSINGERS," about his friend Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, was the #1 song on the 2014 Folk DJ charts. His song THE LAKE came in at #5, while BLAME IT ON THE DOG and ROVIN’ GAMBLER shared the #15 spot. All of those songs are from THE TURNING POINT, which was the #2 most played album of the year.
Tim is the creative talent behind a variety of collaborative works with an impressive array of musicians, including the 2007 Wilderness Plots project; a series of a tribute shows to music legends, including “Hoosier Dylan,” “Hoosier Hank and Johnny,” “Hoosier Beatles,” and more. Most recently, he has been a part of two trio groups – THE TALL TREES with Ben Bedford and Diederik van Wassenaer, and THE GOOD BAD LUCKYS with Joe Crookston and Krista Detor. In October of 2014, he was the keynote speaker at Folk Alliance Region Midwest, where he spoke about the power of folk music as a force for social change in the world. He also commented that when it comes to performing around the country at different venues, it has been his experience that "small rooms equal big connections." We couldn't agree more, and are delighted to welcome Tim and his wife Jan back to our living room for an evening of music, stories, and making connections.
Annie’s disarming, earthy voice and solid command of her guitar are punctuated by Rod’s effortless, accompaniment and beautiful solo work. Together they weave unforgettable melodies that are at once intricate and sparse – musically completing each others’ sentences.
Over the years, Annie and Rod have done it all; from rock to musical theater and while they continue to draw from a wide range of genres and influences, what comes out is a hybrid sound all their own. Genuine and playful; effortless and endearing; this duo has been enchanting audiences in quality music venues, house concerts, coffeehouses and festivals throughout their home state of Michigan and beyond.
