Although his apeparance and personna might suggest otherwise, Gramps is far from a one-trick pony. I've seen him perform dozens of times, and his show keeps changing.

He pays close attention to both his music and stagecraft, and is often seen in Seattle (and on the road) at other musicians' gigs, watching and listening. I was once sitting next to him at a club, and I asked him "why isn't this guy more interesting?" He was able to point out exactly what the performer was doing and why it wasn't holding an audience. He knows his stuff.

Gramps' repertoire includes a lot of old jug band and pre-WW II novelty stuff taken from old records, but he can also put his own spin on Dylan songs and his own material.
