Tracy Grammer to Perform in Colebrook
The Concert is at the Colebrook Country Club Nov. 10th.


Colebrook, NH - Tracy Grammer, who rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer, will be appearing in Colebrook on Friday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m., at the Colebrook Country Club. She will be joined by noted musician Jim Henry, a sideman who plays a variety of electric and acoustic guitars, the mandolin and the dobro. The concert is hosted by the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts.

"Tracy's international fame is well-deserved," said GNWCA President Charlie Jordan. "She's right in the center of the driving force that is folk music today." From 1998-2001, the Grammer and Carter released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums featuring Carter's mytho-poetic Americana songcraft. In 2002, Grammer and Carter toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and as 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. He was 49; Grammer, 34.

Her partner for the Colebrook appearance is Jim Henry. Jim can render emotional sensitivity in one moment then tear into a rock or country solo with such fire it's hard to catch your breath. He is a master of adding whatever is needed at any musical moment. At center stage, whether as a solo artist or leading a band, Jim delivers his finely crafted original songs with a smooth, rich baritone voice and engaging storytelling and humor. Henry has produced, recorded, played and traveled the world with Mary Chapin Carpenter, Paula Cole, Shawn Colvin, Alison Krauss, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Los Lobos, Alseep at the Wheel, Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings, The Weepies, Deb Talan, Eliza Gilkyson, Tracy Grammer, Susan Werner, The Boxcar Lilies-the list goes on.

Determined to honor the journey of Carter and Grammer, Tracy has kept to the road, releasing solo albums as well as selections from the Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer archives. Her latest release, "Little Blue Egg," is a collection of intimate recordings from the duo's home studios.

Over the years, Grammer has become one of 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 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. As one fan put it, "With Tracy, it's never just about the music. It's a soul journey."

Tickets are $15 and available at Fiddleheads, 110 Main St., Colebrook, online at www.gnwca.org or at the door. For more information on this and other GNWCA shows visit www.gnwca.org or you can call 237-9302 or 246-8998.
