     Elaine Dempsey, Lawrence Lambert, and Karl Werne are BiG WiDE GRiN. When this bi-coastal trio – from California and Virginia – gets together it’s more than just a tour. It’s a celebration. They write and perform contemporary acoustic music with a feel that is both familiar and nostalgic. Think about the groups that made you fall in love with this type of music – Crosby Stills & Nash, The Mamas &The Papas, or Peter Paul & Mary. Think about of all those great harmonies, all those socially conscious lyrics, songs of protest, peace, love and togetherness. Think about Poco, Pure Prairie League, and Simon  & Garfunkel. Their songs spoke to us as much with the interplay of guitars and voices as they did with their lyrics.

     Now think BiG WiDE GRiN. Referred to as a “3 Peace Band” or as being “Soulfully Acoustic” everything about this award winning trio is BiG from their charismatic and witty stage presence to their musical wall of sound and their subtle but powerful message of universal love and peace. They all contribute original material to their set lists, they all sing and they each play a variety of instruments  – guitars, bass, banjo, mandolin, strum stick, djembe and other assorted percussion –which they pass around during their concerts to keep things lively. Added to that are harmonies crafted from their three diverse backgrounds in rock, folk, gospel and R & B. When combined, their three voices offer a deep, rich blend that will surely give a music lover goose bumps, a shiver down their spine, or  – yep, you guessed it – a BiG WiDE GRiN.
