Grandma Sparrow, the comical music performance alter ego of musician and composer Joe Westerlund, is the newest member of the Spacebomb family. His album, “Grandma Sparrow & his Piddletractor Orchestra,” will be out on Spacebomb Records on May 20.

Grandma Sparrow’s music has been described as a “psychedelic children’s song-cycle for adults that reveals Westerlund’s fascination with collage, improvisation, humor and the convergence of atonal and popular melodies.” There will be strings, horns, and a lot of unconventional music items to produce a something pulled out of childhood.

On Friday May 16, he’ll be performing at the Coalition Theater supported by the improv comedy troupe Pigeon.
