Multi-instrumentalist and singer Tracy Grammer will stop by the WTJU studios on Sunday, August 5, for a visit with Tell Us A Tale host Peter Jones. Grammer will be in the Central VA area for a performance at the Oak Grove Folk Music Festival on Saturday, August 4. She is currently touring in support of a new Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer CD, Joy My Love, recently released on the Red House Records label.
Tracy Grammer is a nationally-touring multi-instrumentalist and singer who has accompanied and opened for Joan Baez and recorded with Mary Chapin Carpenter. A favorite on the folk circuit, Grammer is primarily known as a sensitive and creative song interpreter with warm vocals and stage presence, pristine fingerstyle guitar, and an unshakable dedication to promoting the legacy of her late partner, songwriter Dave Carter. With several albums that have topped the FOLKDJ-L airplay charts and two intimate EPs that have won critical raves, she has proven herself "one of the finest musicians in folkdom" (Boston Globe). Grammer tours in various configurations from solo to full band. In New England, she is occasionally joined by the multi-talented Jim Henry (Mary Chapin Carpenter, Deb Talan).
