Shirley Grimes

‚On a few fine days in Spring’ the Irish Born singer-songwriter Shirley Grimes met with
Wolfgang Zwiauer and Tom Etter to record what has become a beautifully crafted, warm
and honest song collection, made with lots of devotion and passion for their trade.

Grimes’ songs are personal and intimate, embedded in an acoustic string soundscape
that not only reminds us of where she comes from but also of her need to move forward
and with the help of these two innovative and inspiring melodists, she does so

She remains true to her tradition of not shying away from the truth, of
questioning our humanity, of reminding us of the beauty of simplicity, the need for
honesty and the responsibility that comes with privilege. The result is not only satisfying
to lovers of folk music but also to anyone who loves where music can take us and what it
can awaken within us.
