Folk Artists play West Mountain Inn
Named "One of the finest pure musicians anywhere in folkdom" by the Boston Globe, Tracy Grammer was raised in southern California and began her musical journey on a borrowed violin at the age of nine. She gained notoriety in the folk world as half of a duo with the late great Dave Carter.
A favorite on the folk circuit, Tracy is primarily known as a sensitive, creative song interpreter, with warm vocals, a girl-next-door stage presence, and playing pristine fingerstyle guitar. Her most recent album, Little Blue Egg, a collection of archived home and studio recordings with her late partner Dave Carter, was the most-played album on folk radio during 2012.
Grammer's fiddle playing has been described as music melding Appalachian traditional, classical and progressive rock. Now, with three solo albums under her belt, she continues to perform at clubs and venues world-wide. Grammer & Carter toured with famed folk singer Joan Baez who described Grammer as, "a brilliant artist and unique individual. Her voice is distinctive as is her mastery over the instruments she plays."
In April 2013, Eberhardt won the prestigious Helen Hayes award for original music and performance in the recent Taming of the Shrew production.
Along with selections from each of their popular folk music repertoires, Grammer will share songs from her new album, Little Blue Egg, and Eberhardt will perform material from his latest album, Shrew Songs.
