OXFORD – Singer/songwriter Tracy Grammer will perform her first-ever concert at 6 On The Square at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 in Oxford.
According to event representatives, Grammer first rose to prominence in the late 1990s as half of a folk duo with Dave Carter. Following Carter’s death in 2002, Grammer continued to perform, building a devoted following as an interpreter, multi-instrumentalist, storyteller and champion of Carter’s legacy.
She toured as bandmate and support for Joan Baez, performed alongside Hugh Masekela and Odetta as part of the Songs of the Spirit Tour, and recorded with Mary Chapin Carpenter. She has opened for Suzanne Vega, Judy Collins, Hal Ketchum and Paula Cole; she had taught at Puget Sound Guitar Workshop and Camp Ned; and she is the only performer invited to play the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival 13 years in a row.
For most of her 20-year career, she’s also been one of folk radio's 50 top-played artists, both solo and with the late Dave Carter. That trend continued in 2018 with the release of “Low Tide” — the first of Grammer’s 11 recordings to showcase her original songs.
Funded by fans via Kickstarter, “Low Tide” was the No. 9 most-played album on Folk Radio in 2018, No. 2 on Folk Alley's "Best of 2018" Listener Poll, and among the Top 10 Albums of the Year by Fish Records UK.
