Baby Gramps and Jason Webley

  • Hotel Albatross 2319 Market Street Seattle, Wa 98117 USA (map)

A night with Baby Gramps
"When he performs, it’s part guitar virtuosity and part clowning around, and he often works with charities. A Seattle mainstay for nearly 50 years, Gramps qualifies as an outsider artist. With the heart of a genius, no musical training, his own vocabulary and a voice like Popeye the Sailor, he’s a cross between an early 1900s hobo and a “Sesame Street” character."
Jason Webley
Webley plays various instruments on his albums, including guitar, accordion, piano, marimba, and glockenspiel; when he tours, however, he usually only brings his guitar, an accordion, and a vodka bottle filled with coins from around the world. He has been known to do short tours with a backing band. Webley has performed at several festivals, including Burning Man, Glastonbury Festival, VanFest, and the Oregon Country Fair.[6] His sound has been compared to Tom Waits,[5] Vladimir Vysotsky,[7] Leonard Cohen,[5] and Bob Dylan.[8]
