Grandma Sparrow Brings Comedic Magic to Richmond


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.
