Jed Grimes' track record as an innovator in the field of roots and folk music dates from his early days in the much loved 70s folk-rock band Hedgehog Pie. Since then he has earned Nominations at the BBC Radio Two Folk Awards for his arrangements for the Northumbria Anthology, and his 6-piece folk/jazz/rock outfit The Hush, featuring Bob Fox: he has released three widely acclaimed solo CD albums, and continues to tour the festivals, folk/roots clubs and arts centres of UK and Europe, where his powerful vocal style and rich, often flamboyant guitar style, allied to a ready Geordie wit, excite and entertain audiences numbering from 50 to 25,000 with equal flair.
"Brings folk music into the 21st century!"
BBC Radio Two Folk Website
Superlative, intricate string virtuosity...aural magic!
"Couple a timberous voice that has a richness and depth which you love almost from the first note to the warmth of his playing (acoustic guitar, lap steel and bouzouki).
Add in a sprinkle of sensitive, thoughtful and restrained arrangements...sheer inventiveness."
