Grant Livingston has been a favorite at acoustic music venues throughout Florida since the mid-eighties.
An offbeat sense of humor comes through the stories told in Livingston's songs. You'll meet Einstein and Gypsy Rose on a road trip, a guy who is way serious about eating pie, a French-speaking cat in a graveyard, armadillos, barnacles, an unleashed dog and more.
Many of Grant's songs reflect his love for his South Florida home. History, environment, social commentary, bringing Florida's past to light and making light of its present, Grant has earned the title of Miami's Historian-in-Song.
As a guitarist Livingston employs a style which is a unique mix of ragtime, country blues, and early swing.
Grant's songs appeal to the child in grownups, and to the adult in kids. He often plays for schools, museums, and other children's programs.
