Grammy Nominee Brady Rymer Returns to Greenwich Library

| No Comments
The Greenwich Library welcomes back 2009 Grammy nominees Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could on Saturday, January 30, at 2 p.m., in the Cole Auditorium. All-American roots-rock with a feel-good R&B foundation is Rymer's calling card. Kids love the energy and Rymer's magnetic charm, while the band's musicianship is something even the most discerning music-loving parent can appreciate.

"Mr. Rymer's American roots-rock is a huge hit with children. And he has a pedigree that will please parents too," said The New York Times. Join the family party as Brady Rymer and the Little Band That Could delivers strong, straight-ahead grooves and catchy sing-along choruses you can't resist.

"What's coolest for me is looking out at an audience of all ages and feeling everyone - moms, dads, little kids and big ones, grandmas, grandpas, aunts and uncles - smiling, dancing and singing all together," Rymer said.

Rymer's music exhibits a deep love for rock 'n' roll in all its roots: folk, country, blues, funk, and of course classic pop and rock. "Chuck Berry, (Bob) Dylan, (Bruce) Springsteen, the Beatles, the Grateful Dead -- but also Bob Marley, James Brown, Motown and the Rolling Stones," Rymer said. "I grew up listening to it all, and it's all there in my music."

Rymer, who toured and recorded with RCA's From Good Homes for 13 years, has shared the stage with the likes of Dylan, Dave Matthews and the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir. Parenthood then expanded the scope of his music to include young and old alike. He has since recorded five albums of critically acclaimed family rock 'n' roll. Along with its Grammy nomination, the band has garnered 13 national awards, including multiple Parents' Choice Gold and NAPPA Gold awards.

Pick up free assigned seating tickets (limit 6 per person) at the auditorium door starting at noon, and return when doors open at 1:50 p.m. For more information, please contact the Friends Office at (203)-622-7938.
