Jerome Browne is a multi-instrumentalist, a songwriter, and a living encyclopedia of American Roots music.

Whether he's gliding a slide across his national guitar, pulling his bow over the fiddle strings to play a lively Cajun waltz, or frailing away on his gourd banjo, Michael's passion and virtuosity always shine through. In the true tradition of folk music, his performances inspire us to see the interconnections between the many cultures and influences that gave birth to American Roots Music. Gospel, Blues, Old-Time, Country, Soul and Cajun, expect to hear all of this and more from a performer who's been called a street-smart archivist and an absolute treasure.

Tracy Grammer with Jim Henry

Presented by the Great North Woods Committee for the Arts

Friday, November 10, 7:00 pm

Location:
Colebrook Country Club
15 Abenaki Lane
Colebrook, NH

Tickets: $15

Tracy Grammer rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998-2001, 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. He was 49; Grammer, 34.

Determined to honor the duo's journey and bring Carter's songs, and those of other favorite writers, to broader audiences, Grammer has kept to the road, releasing solo albums as well as selections from the Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer archives.

Grammer has become one of folk music's most beloved artists. Renowned for her springwater-clear alto, perfectly intoned violin, and guitar playing that is by turns percussive and delicate, Grammer is also 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 reclusive accompanist. As one fan put it, "With Tracy, it's never just about the music. It's a soul journey."

Bob Amos first became an internationally recognized and acclaimed bluegrass musician and songwriter as the leader of the popular award winning band Front Range. From 1990-2003, Front Range recorded seven CDs, and received top notch reviews and heavy airplay on bluegrass radio programs throughout the world.

Over many years Amos has been universally praised for his musical arrangements and original bluegrass material. Sing Out! magazine has called Bob “one of the most constantly intelligent and interesting songwriters in American music.”

Bob is once again in the bluegrass spotlight with a whole new batch of stellar original songs, and a terrific new band, Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing, to present this new material to the public. The group features Bob on banjo, guitar and vocals, his daughter Sarah Amos on vocals, Freeman Corey on fiddle, Gary Darling on mandolin and vocals, Steve Wright on guitar and vocals, and bassist Chris Cruger. The band puts on an entertaining high-energy show, with stellar harmonies, rock solid instrumentation, top shelf original material, plus great new interpretations of some bluegrass classics.

Bob’s CD “Borrowed Time” was given a highlight review in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, and his most recent CD, “Sunrise Blues,” was named Best Traditional Album of the Year by Vermont’s Barre-Montpelier Times Argus Music Awards. VPR’s “All The Traditions” radio host Robert Resnick wrote “(Sunrise Blues) gets my vote as best acoustic album of 2014.”
