Tracy Grammer

Called "a musician and singer of dazzling versatility" (No Depression), Tracy Grammer is among contemporary folk music's most beloved artists. Renowned for her pure voice, deft guitar and violin work, and incantatory storytelling, 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 has spent most of her 20-year career as one of folk radio's 50 top-played artists, both solo and with the late Dave Carter.

Grammer is on tour with LOW TIDE, her eleventh album and the first ever to feature her original songs. Funded entirely by fans via Kickstarter, LOW TIDE was the #9 most-played album on Folk Radio throughout North America for 2018, was voted #2 on Folk Alley's "Best of 2018" Listener Poll, and was listed among the Top Ten Albums of the Year by Fish Records UK. In addition to touring, Grammer teaches at song camps, delivers keynotes, mentors young artists, and judges songwriting contests. In 2019 she returned to her acting roots, winning roles in local theater and a short film. She is also a member of the Pioneer Valley Writers Workshop where she is working on a memoir. Grammer lives in Greenfield, Mass. with her beloved Miss Kitty.
