Two troubadours are riding into Columbus for a special afternoon of contemporary western music and poetry at the Friedhof Building (1270 27 Ave.), sponsored by the Columbus Public Library on Saturday, March 6th.
Kerry Grombacher and Aspen Black will perform their “Songs & Stories of the American West” concert at 2 p.m. Their work draws vivid portraits and tells fascinating stories that are set in the Western landscape, where they’ve worked and traveled with cowboys and Indians, ranchers and rodeo riders, outfitters and chuck wagon cooks, and lawmen and lawbreakers. Kerry and Aspen, both successful solo artists, have worked together as a duo since 2014, performing nationwide for arts councils, private concerts, festivals, museums, and libraries. Their songs are influenced by the English ballad tradition, the string-band music of Aspen’s Appalachian home, and the corridos of the desert southwest, where Kerry has lived and worked. Bring your whole family to experience learning about the American West in a fun and exciting way.
