TRACY GRAMMER & JIM HENRY - BIOGRAPHY
Contact: Tracy Grammer, 503-475-7473 / firstname.lastname@example.org
The TRACY GRAMMER & JIM HENRY duo is synonymous with impeccable musicianship, perfect harmonies, a diverse repertoire, and the kind of musical chemistry and humorous banter you’d expect from musicians who have been touring and playing around the world together for almost 20 years. A typical show includes a stage full of instruments (acoustic/electric guitars, violin, mandolin, Dobro) and a set list full of original songs, instrumentals, creatively reimagined covers, and highlights from Dave Carter’s award-winning catalog. Both reside in the Pioneer Valley — Henry lives in Shutesbury, where he also operates Rubytone Studios, and Grammer resides in Greenfield with her cat, Pickles.
