From western MASS. Enjoying the natural beauty of this part of the country. Small farms and markets, gravel roads and so much acoustic music-- folk, bluegrass, etc. to be heard- live and over the airwaves. I'm doing live on-air interviews & songs in New London, CT and Amherst, MA. this week. HEART LAND is getting significant airplay on folk shows around the country. Tim Grimm was #6 in the Top Artists of July 2002 for Folk Radio airplay. HEART LAND was the 8th most played album, and BETTER DAYS was the #8 song. Wherever you live, if you enjoy a radio program of folk music, be sure to request tracks from the cd. If the dj/programmer does not have a copy, they may contact us here and we'll be more than happy to get them one ! Many of you have asked about the status on the new recording. Well, it is finished, mixed and mastered and the artwork is virtually complete. Many of the HEART LAND musicians are on this disc as well. I've also enlisted some fine guests, including Stacey Earle, and Greg Cahill of Special Consensus, and my old pals Ramblin' Jack Elliott and mandolin virtuoso, Don Stiernberg. We're exploring a few release options and WILL keep you posted !
