A favorite on the folk circuit, Tracy Grammer is primarily known as a sensitive, creative song interpreter, with warm vocals, a girl-next-door stage presence, pristine fingerstyle guitar, and an unshakeable dedication to celebrating the legacy of her late partner, songwriter Dave Carter. Her quick wit and writer's eye also make her a powerful story teller, and it's often the case that at the end of the night, audiences can't decide which they loved better -- the songs, or the stories behind them. Grammer is currently touring in support of LITTLE BLUE EGG, a collection of "found" recordings made with her late partner, Dave Carter, in their home studios from 1997-2002. LBE was the #1 most-played album on folk radio in February and March 2012; #2 in April 2012.With several albums that have topped the folk and Americana airplay charts over the last 12 years, and two intimate EPs that have won critical raves, Grammer has proven herself "one of the finest musicians in folkdom" (Boston Globe).
Cliff Eberhardt is one of the champions of contemporary folk music. He grew up in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, not far from the Main Point Coffee House where he heard and was influenced by musicians like James Taylor, John Prine, Bonnie Raitt, Muddy Waters, Mississippi John Hurt, Jackson Browne. Cliff started playing professionally at age 15, and after stints in Illinois and Colorado, became a major figure in the New Folk scene in Greenwich Village in the 1980s, along with peers John Gorka, Suzanne Vega, Lucy Kaplansky, Julie Gold, Steve Forbert, Christine Lavin, Shawn Colvin. Eberhardt has released nine albums, including 500 Miles: The Blue Rock Sessions, his most recent on his label, Red House Records. In the spring of 2012, he appeared at the Folger Shakespeare Theater in Washington, D.C., where he received rave reviews for his performance of his original music as The Blind Balladeer in a Wild West version of The Taming of the Shrew. Cliff is a gifted songwriter and performer of his contemporary folk, bluesy and romantic songs, delivering extremely strong live shows. His superb guitar playing, soulful singing, and engaging wit make for a “compelling, thought-filled, emotional roller coaster of a concert.”
