Tim Grimm, an award-winning songwriter and stage/screen actor, makes his Grassroots Concerts debut on Friday, Sept. 19, in a 7:30 p.m. show that will include his wife, Jan Lucas, on vocals and harmonica.

The event is the first of five fall concerts to be held at the Live Well Nightclub and Coffee Bar in Nisswa. The concert series is in its 26th year, and this will be the 287th concert.

Tim Grimm has toured and recorded with his friend, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and appeared with Harrison Ford in the film "Clear and Present Danger." Each of his past five recordings has reached the top of the Folk or American-roots charts.

After several years working in Los Angeles (where he co-starred for two seasons on the NBC drama "Reasonable Doubts" and appeared in several films), Grimm returned home to rural, southern Indiana. He now lives there with his wife and sons.
