Tracy Grammer w/ Peggy Watson

San Diego Folk Heritage - San Dieguito United Methodist Church, 170 Calle Magdalena, Encinitas, CA

Peggy Watson will open for Tracy Grammer. Tracy Grammer rose to acclaim as half of the “postmodern, mythic acoustic” duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998-2001, the duo released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums featuring Carter’s mytho-poetic Americana songcraft and in 2002, toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez’s band members. In July 2002, Carter died of a heart attack while the duo was on tour in Massachusetts. He was 49; Grammer was 34. Determined to honor the duo’s journey and bring Carter’s award-winning songs, and those of other favorite writers, to broader audiences, Grammer kept to the road and now tours internationally, releasing solo recordings as well as recovered and reclaimed Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer material. Her latest release, LITTLE BLUE EGG, is a collection of archived recordings from the duo’s home studios. LBE was the #1 most-played album on Folk Radio in 2012, by the #1 most-played artists for the year. It was not an easy journey at first — Grammer admits that the twin fires of insecurity and grief made performing solo quite difficult. But it bonded her to her audiences for life.
