Event

Tracy Grammer with special guest Ian Fitzgerald
Saturday, January 12, 2013
Music at Lily Pads presents
Tracy Grammer with special guest Ian Fitzgerald

Lily Pads is very pleased to host the acclaimed performer Tracy Grammer, touring in support of her most recent release, Little Blue Egg, that features the songs of late partner and collaborator Dave Carter. Carter and Grammer signed to Massachusetts-based label Signature Sounds in 2000 and released two chart-topping albums of what they called "postmodern, mythic American folk music." In addition to heavy airplay across AAA, Americana and folk radio stations, the duo was highly celebrated by the press. The Boston Globe declared that "If the voice of modern folk is changing - it is going to sound a lot like Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer." The flood of praise resulted in a full calendar of concert dates and an invitation to join folk icon Joan Baez on her spring 2002 east coast tour as both featured artists and band members. Carter died suddenly in 2002, just before his 50th birthday, and his death left Tracy and the folk music community reeling.

Grammer continues to perform Carter's songs and has produced three solo and two duo albums since Carter's death, including the critically acclaimed tribute CD Flower of Avalon with John Jennings as co-producer and Mary Chapin Carpenter contributing backing vocals and liner notes. In 2012 Red House Records releases Little Blue Egg, an album of previously-unreleased Dave & Tracy recordings. The CD includes eleven tracks, with five additional songs released throughout 2012 as part of a year-long celebration to mark the 10th anniversary of Carter's death and what would have been his 60th birthday. Grammer says, "I'll keep on singing, and I'll keep on telling my story, however that evolves. Working with Dave Carter was the first step on what I hope is going to be a long and fruitful road for me: the endless quest for authenticity through music."

We at Lily Pads are honored to host Tracy in her ongoing celebration of Dave Carter's music.

About Ian Fitzgerald:

Ian Fitzgerald prefers the term 'folk singer,' as it more accurately describes the tradition in which his music is rooted. From early twentieth century field recordings through Woody Guthrie, Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch, and hundreds of artists in between, Ian has been influenced by one of the sturdiest strains of American music.

Ian and accompanying singer Courtney Gallagher return to Lily Pads after a short set at friend Jonah Tolchin's CD release party in June 2012. We are excited to welcome them back.

Don't miss what is sure to be a very special evening, our first show of the New Year.
