The Nields––sisters Nerissa and Katryna––have lit up the folk circuit since 1991. For twenty-five years now, the sisters have traveled the country as members of beloved folk rock band The Nields, and produced 17 albums. Since becoming mothers (each sister has a daughter and a son) they have gone on to broaden their repertoire with children’s CDs, a DVD and a book All Together Singing in the Kitchen: Creative Ways to Make and Listen to Music as a Family.
The Nields have been lauded for their gorgeous, lilting, sibling harmonies, their wise, classic, folk/pop songs, their hilarious banter on stage, and their generosity and warmth in performance and engagement with their fans. Their latest album, XVII, celebrates a lifelong career whose aims continue to be a deep faith in community, loyalty, and the power of music to bring joy. They have just released a double album greatest hits collection (on vinyl!) called Haven’t I Paid My Dues By Now and are at work on music for a soundtrack to Nerissa’s forthcoming novel, The Big Idea.
Saturday 11/5/2016 7:30 PM Tracy Grammer
A one-time member of Joan Baez’s band, TRACY GRAMMER has traveled throughout North America, Europe, and Japan playing her own songs and those of her favorite writers, while also paying tribute to songwriter Dave Carter, with whom she performed and recorded from 1996 until his sudden death in 2002.
Renowned for her springwater-clear alto 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. Stories about the duo's first meeting, Carter's quirks and fancies, or Grammer's own misadventures 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.
Her most recent release, LITTLE BLUE EGG (with Dave Carter), was the most-played album on folk radio for 2012. She is writing songs for her first album of original material and is hard at work on a memoir. She lives in Greenfield, Mass. with her beloved Miss Kitty.
