Event

An Evening with Tracy Grammer
TRACY GRAMMER rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998-2001, the duo released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums featuring Carter's mytho-poetic Americana songcraft and in 2002, the duo toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez's band members. Called "the new voice of modern folk music," the duo was clearly in its ascendancy when in July 2002, Carter suffered a fatal heart attack while the duo was on tour in Massachusetts. He was 49; Grammer, 34.

Determined to honor the duo's journey and bring Carter's songs, and those of other favorite writers, to broader audiences, Grammer kept to the road and now tours internationally, releasing solo albums as well as selections from the Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer archives. Her latest release, LITTLE BLUE EGG, is a collection of intimate recordings from the duo's home studios. LBE was the #1 most-played album on Folk Radio in 2012, and once again, the duo were the #1 most-played artists for the year.

Grammer has become one of folk music's most beloved performers. Renowned for her springwater-clear alto, perfectly intoned violin, and guitar playing that is by turns percussive and delicate, Grammer is also a masterful storyteller with an ease and charisma on stage -- not to mention a riotous sense of humor -- that hardly belie her modest beginnings as Carter's reclusive accompanist. Stories about the duo's first meeting, Carter's quirks and fancies, or Grammer's own misadventures and missteps are woven thoughtfully into the set list to create a uniquely personal evening that connects audiences to performer, to the Carter/Grammer legacy, and most importantly, to one another. Additionally, Grammer has begun down the songwriter's path as part of a song-a-week challenge called RealWomenRealSongs, and is sharing her fresh, fledgling efforts--and the stories and struggles behind them--on her current tour, to the delight of her longtime fans. As one fan put it, "With Tracy, it's never just about the music. It's a soul journey."

Grammer will perform this evening with long-time accompanist Rob Schnell on percussion, vocals, and guitar.

In addition to touring, Grammer is the director of the nonprofit Dave Carter Legacy Project and is the publishing administrator for Carter's song catalog. She is currently working on a memoir about her six years with Dave Carter. She lives in Doylestown, Pa.

Tickets are $15 in advance ($16.52 with service fee), and $20 at the door.
