TRACY GRAMMER


"Tracy Grammer is a brilliant artist and unique individual. Her voice is distinctive, as is her mastery over the instruments she plays."
- Joan Baez

"[Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer have] become a treasured part of my music collection... Flower of Avalon presents more songs by Dave Carter, with Tracy at the helm as artist, interpreter, co-producer and the beating heart at the center of it all. Her pure voice conveys the simple truths of these songs; her gifts as a musician are like that of a painter who is a master of chiaroscuro, offering light and shadow at every turn.... I was honored and humbled by the invitation to sing on this record."
- Mary Chapin Carpenter

"Tracy Grammer has that elusive quality of being able to speak directly to another person's heart - instantly bypassing all of the usual infrastructure - the moment she starts singing. She's great."
- Richard Shindell

"A gracefully gifted multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer."
- Pasadena Weekly

"One of the finest pure musicians anywhere in folkdom."
- The Boston Globe

"Armed with a few of the sassier members of the string family, and a voice as nuanced and strong as you could hope for, Grammer delivers ... with a supernatural force that funnels straight through your ear to the deep, deep center of your heart."
- The Missoula Independent

"Tracy has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard in my life. There's also a sadness and sorrow and pain and depth of knowledge to Tracy's playing. I really think there's nobody like her in the world."
- Dave Carter, quoted in Dirty Linen, 2002

"Sumptuous sonics... hauntingly arresting music."
- Vintage Guitar Magazine

Tracy Grammer's Slow, Sure Hand

"I am not, in fact, a fiddler," Tracy Grammer reminded the audience at
Jammin' Java on Sunday night. Grammer studied classical violin as a
child, but she became known in the folk world as half of an incandescent
duo with Dave Carter, who died in 2002. She's been learning tunes from
Jim Henry, who's touring with her, and the ones she played on Sunday
revealed a gift for the fiddle: Wielding her bow with vigor and finesse,
Grammer somehow seemed to find Appalachian trad as a milepost between
classical music and prog rock

Mostly, though, the show was remarkable for its songs -- and the
slowness of them. Grammer gave Carter's "Crocodile Man" -- a song she
drolly revealed had been covered by Maureen McCormick ("Marcia Brady's
singing this song!") -- a sultry approach that lent weight to its
slightly sinister protagonist's story. On "Hey Ho," another Carter
composition about marketing war to children, the measured guitar beat
came with the same sure hand she used on the fiddle, each beat like a
karate chop. And Henry's shimmering strums on his electric guitar on
"The Power and Glory," which Carter wrote after his first failed trip to
become a Nashville star, were a perfect addition to its graceful lament.

An unexpected high point was a cover of Jackson Browne's "In the Shape
of a Heart." Grammer stripped away every trace of '70s overproduction,
her spring-water-clear alto revealing the finely crafted song that lay
beneath.
- Pamela Murray Winters, The Washington Post
