Tracy Grammer is one of contemporary folk music's most beloved artists. Renowned for her springwater-clear alto, perfectly intoned violin, and guitar playing that is by turns percussive and delicate, Grammer is also a gifted storyteller.

"With Tracy, it's never just about the music; it's a soul journey."a fan

And what a journey it has been. 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, chart-topping albums featuring Carter's mytho-poetic Americana songcraft and in 2002, toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez's bandmates. 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 mid-tour. He was 49; Grammer, 34.

Determined to honor the duo's trajectory, Grammer kept to the road, releasing several recordings including 2012's Little Blue Egg (Red House Records), the #1 most-played album on Folk Radio in 2012 with that year's #1 most-played song.

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

Grammer is currently on tour celebrating the release of Low Tide, her first album of original songs and the first of her eleven albums, she says, "that really sounds like me." Co-produced with long-time touring partner Jim Henry (a multi-instrumentalist who will be accompanying Tracy on our stage), Low Tide was released in January of this year.
