Album Notes
Like his music, Grant Carrington is all over the lot, with degrees in math, computing jobs for NASA, a library, the Navy, a biological research station, and the US Treasury.

He has performed as a Shakespearean actor, in musicals, and behind the scenes as a lighting technician.

Five of his plays have been produced in Baltimore.

He has published over 50 short stories, most of them science fiction, and one sf novel (TIME'S FOOL).

He prefers hiking to doing anything else.

His musical influences include Woody Guthrie, Peter LaFarge, Richard Thompson, Patrick Sky, Herbie Mann, Bud Shank, Kimio Eto, Ravi and Ananda Shankar, classical composers Georges Enescu, Camille Saint Saens, and Modeste Mussorgsky, and the Holy Modal Rounders.

And that's just for starters.

Give me 5 minutes and I'll come up with 20 more.

His music career began at Washington DC's Dupont Circle as half of the hungry 2, and continued solo at The Bent Card in Gainesville Florida, the Blue Unicorn in San Francisco, Andy's in New Orleans, The Exit in New Haven, and the Gaslight in New York City.

Currently he performs regularly at The Year of the Rabbit in Bowie, Maryland.
