Library concerts are one of our favorite venues."

And listen to what others are saying about the songs of Grayson Hugh:

“And his lyrics! If you love words, if you’re one of those people for whom heaven is a rainy day and a good book, then know this: Hugh doesn’t write words — he writes pictures.” - Leonard Pitts Jr., Miami Herald, winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary

Grayson Hugh has been there and is back again. His story – our story – has to be heard.” - Robert Doerschuk — CMAworld, May 10, 2010 “Grayson Hugh - Great Artist!” Blues and Roots Guitarist and Producer (Dwight Yoakum, Lucinda Williams, Roy Orbison, Michelle Shocked) March 1, 2016

And about the concerts by Grayson Hugh and Polly Messer:

“Grayson Hugh and his wife, the superb singer Polly Messer, did a spectacular show the other night at Infinity Music Hall. Blue-Eyed Soul's Prodigal Son is back - and stronger than ever. ” - Jack Forchette, Director of Entertainment and Business Development, Infinity Music Hall, Norfolk, CT, May 21, 2012

“At the recent concert on Friday November 15th, Simsbury Public Library was fortunate indeed to hear an hour of world class music. Singer-songwriter and pianist Grayson Hugh, along with his wife singer Polly Messer, enthralled us with not only Grayson’s superb songs, but fascinating stories behind the compositions. Their performance, in front of a standing-room-only audience of 140, would have easily been at home in any venue several times the size . In an overwhelming response, people have asked us to bring Grayson and Polly back to sing for us often! ” - Lyndsay Neffinger — Adult Services Librarian, Simsbury Public Library, November 20, 2019 “Amazing show last night!!! I always expect great music from Grayson Hugh and am never disappointed. But at last night's concert at The Katherine Hepburn Theater, he took us all up to a new level because of the musical chemistry with Polly. It's a magical blend!    ” - Colin McEnroe, Host of The Colin McEnroe Show, WPNR/CPBN, April 10, 2011

Grayson and Polly will be on hand for a meet and greet following the show, where you can purchase Hugh's CDs and have him sign them if you wish. This concert is made possible by the Friends Of East Lyme Public Library.


Tapeworks Recording Studio, 770 Maple Avenue, Hartford, CT 06103

On Saturday April 25th at 5 pm, I will be doing a concert, with Polly Messer, at the recording studio where my new Roots Country album “Save Your Love For Me". is in the process of being recorded. Experience a sneak preview of these new songs of mine just a few feet away from my favorite concert grand piano in the world! There is truly nothing like the great big sound of a great concert grand, and the one at Tapeworks (a Yamaha C6) is like having the lushness of a symphony orchestra or a full country band at the tip of your fingers. From the lyrical expression of my favorite Hank Williams classic "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry", to the honky tonk country rock of my song "A Whole Lot Of Love", this is the instrument I love to perform on. The $50 Ticket includes wine, soft drinks and light fare. This is going to be a truly wonderful and unique evening. Ticket proceeds will go toward the completion of my new record "Save Your Love For Me". Seating is limited, so reserve your seats as soon as you can. To make your reservations, email me at or call me at my studio phone (203) 417-9950. Polly and I look forward to seeing you in April!

“And his lyrics! If you love words, if you’re one of those people for whom heaven is a rainy day and a good book, then know this: Hugh doesn’t write words — he writes pictures. Like "Forever Yours, Forever Mine", which speaks of “steep September daylight when the shadows fall at four” and “eyes just staring down the college street strewn with the paper of sycamore leaves.” Like "Road To Freedom", which offers a breathtaking view — “over the tops of mountains over the western snow, watching the river wander, just a vein of silver far below” — and adds a hard observation certain to strike a chord with any Native American or African American — “They take away your money, and they take away your name, and they take the ground that you’re standing on but never, ever take the blame.” Have I heard any newcomer in the last decade that excites me as much as this guy? No.” - Leonard Pitts. Jr.. Miami Herald, Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, October 19, 1992
