Western Troubadours

Kerry Grombacher & Aspen Black 

Presented by Hastings Public Library

Kerry Grombacher plays guitar and mandolin and writes and performs contemporary folk and western songs. His songs paint vivid portraits and tell fascinating stories that are set in the landscape that stretches from New Orleans to the desert Southwest and north to the Hi-Line of Montana. Grombacher’s work explores the boundaries of musical genres, and he frequently mixes traditions: cowboy songs written as rumbas, polkas or “Cajun” songs; a piece, inspired by a photograph, that combines spoken word verses and a melodic chorus; a blues-rumba written in the obscure “chiastic” form; and songs written in Spanish and English. Aspen Black is a versatile singer/songwriter with a vast, eclectic repertoire and the “voice of an angel” (Dick Shoemaker, YNN-TV). Her unique sound and thought-provoking lyrics connect with, and captivate, audiences of all ages.
