The nice thing about raw talent is that it never really goes away. Larkin Grimm has a powerful and soulful voice that is so striking in its beauty. It is the keystone of her remarkable career. But Larkin last played shows regularly around the release of her last album in early 2012 — we recorded the CD release show. In the last two years, she’s been home raising her son and living a family life. But with a batch of new songs, it was time for Larkin Grimm to return to live performance and we were so happy that one of her first shows back was our NYCTaper event at Trans Pecos a few weeks ago. From the very first note of her set it was clear that she was happy to be back, and we were happy to see her. The voice was as strong as ever and it was perhaps the most relaxed and satisfying set we have ever seen Larkin play. She assembled an outstanding band and worked through a forty minute set with a couple of new songs, some old favorites and one traditional number. Larkin Grimm will next play at the Martin Bisi CD release show at Glasslands on April 15.

acidjack recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 cardiod microphones in the wide-angle ORTF pattern at the stage lip, combined with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!
