Get Your Folk on with Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry
Called “a musician and singer of dazzling versatility,” Tracy Grammer is among contemporary folk music’s most beloved artists.
Jim Henry is a man of many talents, able to render emotional sensitivity in one moment, then tear into a rock or country solo with such a fire it’s hard to catch your breath. Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry will be performing at Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center on Sunday, February 16th at 7pm. Doors open at 6pm. Tickets are $18 for members, $20 for the general public. Student tickets are half-price and children under 12 are free. Advance tickets are available online at wslr.org or by calling 1-800-838-3006.
Renowned for her pure voice, deft guitar and violin work, and incantatory storytelling, Tracy Grammer has recorded and performed with Joan Baez and Mary Chapin Carpenter, headlined several of the nation’s top folk festivals, including Philadelphia Folk Festival and Falcon Ridge, and enjoyed 12 consecutive years as one of folk radio’s 50 top-played artists, both solo and with the late Dave Carter.
Jim Henry is a master of adding whatever is needed at any musical moment. His skill on a variety of electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin and dobro offer up a versatility that is hard to fully appreciate, until you’ve heard him play. He has produced, recorded, played and traveled the world with a number of artists including Paula Cole, Shawn Colvin, Alison Krauss, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Los Lobos, and many others.
