"Red Cloud Opera House, Red Cloud NE"

“For nearly two hours, Grombacher stood alone at center stage with a microphone and his guitar, a bottle of water at his feet. What poured from him were some of the most insightful and skillfully-crafted songs you will ever hear.”
Chuck Mittan – The Superior Express, Superior NE 9/18/08

[W]ith just a fiddle, an acoustic guitar and an upright bass, he sang beautiful songs that evoke a land defined by big skies and miles between people.

Bio

Kerry Grombacher plays guitar and mandolin and writes and performs contemporary folk and western songs. In the spirit of the troubadours of old, he paints vivid portraits and tells fascinating stories that are set in the landscape where he’s worked and toured, from his home on New Orleans’ Bayou St. John to the desert Southwest, and up to Montana and the Northwest forests. You’ll find him at Folk Festivals and Cowboy Poetry Gatherings, singing his songs, playing mandolin as a sideman, and picking in the jam sessions and around the campfires until the last song is sung.

Kerry has performed on stages as varied as the Newport Folk Festival (Newport, RI) and Cowboy Songs & Range Ballads (Cody, WY), the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival (New Orleans, LA) and the Durango Cowboy Poetry Gathering (Durango, CO). In addition to appearing at Folk Festivals and Cowboy Gatherings, he regularly sings his songs at performing arts centers, coffeehouses, house concerts and other music venues – and on Sands Motel parking lots!

Kerry’s recordings include the cds, It Sings in the Hi-Line (2008), Sands Motel (2001) and Riding for the Brand (1999), and the tape releases, Dreams of New Orleans (1998) and Home to the West (1996). Artists including Gary Prescott, Chris Chandler, The Texas Trailhands, Earl Gleason, Duke Davis, and Trails & Rails, and have recorded his songs. He’s performed on the nationally distributed radio program, River City Folk, the Louisiana Jukebox television program and the Montana television show, It’s Still the West. He’s been featured on the Route 66 website and in The Big Round-Up (www.cowboypoetry.com), and there’s a room named for him at the Sands Motel on historic Route 66 in Grants NM!

Kerry Grombacher is a member of the North American Folk Alliance and the Western Music Association, and he participates in the endorsement program for Elixir Guitar and Mandolin Strings. When he’s not on the road, Kerry lives in New Orleans, where he’s recently moved back into his flooded home.
