Quite simply one, Grace Adele is of the best voices to be heard in music today. Grace Adele has mixed elements of Americana, Country, and Retro. With her silky sultry vocals she caresses every word in songs of love, loss and laughter.

Grace Adele surrounds herself with the finest talent. Whether she is performing as a duo with her partner in crime, mandolinist Keenan Wade or traveling with her string players known as The Grand Band. The group always delivers an all out striking performance. A talented instrumentalist herself Ms. Adele adds a spark of comedy as a master of the kazoo and even provides a little tap-danced percussion on occasion. It's a show that encompasses everything from a traditional fiddle tune to original melodies that are both instantly memorable. Listen to her once and you'll be entranced; see her perform and you'll understand just how compellingly vital and engaging an artist can be.

Grace Adele & The Grand Band bring their tender ballads and unique craft for folksy storytelling to the Village Idiot (309 Conant St., Maumee) on Friday, January 13. 7:30 p.m.
