Prinz Grizzley at Thimblemill

Next Saturday, (27th) Austria’s Prinz Grizzley will be bringing his own blend of country, folk and blues to Thimblemill Library as part of his UK tour. The inspiration for his songs come not from the US but from Austria, a country he feels very passionate about. One he returned to be surrounded by, as he says, “mountains, forests, stubbornness, warmth of heart, religiosity and part of a very simple life”.
