Tracy Grammer

TRACY GRAMMER is one of contemporary folk music’s most beloved artists. Renowned for her pure, emotive vocals, perfectly intoned violin, and guitar playing that is by turns percussive and delicate, Grammer is also a gifted storyteller whose incantations add a rare mixture of vulnerability, intimacy, and hard-won insight to her performances. As one fan puts it, “With Tracy, it’s never just about the music; it’s a soul journey.”

And what a journey it has been. Grammer rose to acclaim as half of the “postmodern, mythic American folk” duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998-2001, the duo released three internationally celebrated, chart-topping albums featuring Carter’s mytho-poetic Americana songcraft and in 2002, toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez’s bandmates. Called “the new voice of modern folk music,” the duo was clearly in its ascendancy when in July 2002, Carter suffered a fatal heart attack mid-tour. He was 49; Grammer, 34.

“Tracy is a brilliant artist… Her voice is distinctive and beautiful, as is her mastery over the instruments she plays.” – JOAN BAEZ

“Tracy Grammer is among the finest singers and musicians anywhere in folkdom.” – THE BOSTON GLOBE

The Firebirds

These one-of-a-kind hand forged giant fire sculptures are exquisitely beautiful in their design and function and create a soft place to land at the end of a fun-filled day to visit with friends. These unique and beautiful sculptures are filled with wood nightly and heat the steel hot enough to warm the large crowd around them so we can gather together comfortably. We are extremely honored and fortunate to have our dear friend and artist, Charlie Blackcat Smith, collaborate with us so he can bring these exquisite works of art of his to our event. Charlie, along with his Sparceland Studios crew give us an amazing gift at The Spirit Of The Road. They bring the gift of a warmth and an inviting place for all of us to gather …every night.
