We're delighted that international recording artist, TRACY GRAMMER will perform an intimate concert at Sacred Lands! Tracy rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From[masked], the duo released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums featuring Carter's mytho-poetic Americana songcraft and in 2002, toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez's band members. 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 while the duo was on tour in Massachusetts. He was 49; Grammer, 34. Determined to honor the duo’s journey and bring Carter’s award-winning songs, and those of other favorite writers, to broader audiences, Grammer kept to the road and now tours internationally, releasing solo albums as well as recovered and reclaimed Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer material. Her latest release, LITTLE BLUE EGG, is a collection of archived recordings from the duo's home studios. LBE was the #1 most-played album on Folk Radio in 2012, and once again, the duo were the #1 most-played artists for the year. Grammer has become one of folk music's most beloved performers. Renowned for her springwater-clear alto, perfectly intoned violin, and guitar playing that is by turns percussive and delicate, Grammer has also become a masterful storyteller with an ease and charisma on stage -- not to mention a riotous sense of humor -- that hardly belie her modest beginnings as Carter's ethereal and reclusive accompanist. Stories about the duo’s first meeting, Carter’s quirks and fancies, or Grammer’s own misadventures and missteps are woven thoughtfully into the set list to create a uniquely personal evening that connects audiences to performer, to the Carter/Grammer legacy, and most importantly, to one another. As one fan put it, “With her, it’s never just about the music. It’s a soul journey.” Grammer tours the United States and Canada regularly, and has traveled to Europe and Japan. She holds the record for the most consecutive appearances at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival ~ a lucky 13. She performs in a variety of configurations -- solo, duo, trio, and full band -- with Jim Henry (Mary Chapin Carpenter, Burns Sisters, Susan Werner), Rob Schnell (Glim Dropper, Christine Havrilla), Tom Hampton (Marshall Tucker Band, Poco), and David Chalfant (Nields) rounding out her ensembles. In addition to touring, she is the director of the new Dave Carter Legacy Project and the publishing administrator for Carter's catalog of music. She is currently based in Doylestown, Pa., where she lives with her beau, his four teenagers, a dog named Blitzen, and her beloved Miss Kitty.

The opening act is called "2PM" . We welcome back this folk trio which includes Mike Jurgensen, Pete Price and Pete Hennings.

    The house was packed! The opening act, 2PM (2 Pete's and a Mike) was a great lead into Tracy's music. I bought 2 CD's and have been playing them non-stop! The encore included 2PM and Tracy playing together. There were grins all around. Amazing music in the intimate setting of the greenhouse. If you haven't been here, you are missing a hidden gem!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
