Tracy Grammer's Musical Tribute to a Lost Friend
Three years after tragedy ended her collaboration with Dave Carter, Tracy Grammer emerges with her first full-length solo album, the beautifully textured Flower of Avalon.
The songs, on which Grammer plays her trademark violin as well as guitar, were written by Carter but had never been recorded. In that way, Flower of Avalon is a tribute to Grammer's bandmate, a phenomenally talented songwriter who died at 49 of a sudden heart attack, in July of 2002.
Before that tragic end, the pair were a rising force in the world of folk music, touring with Joan Baez and gaining a following that extended into mainstream America. With Flowers, Grammer is giving fans another taste of their musical partnership.
