    Rock My Soul

    Join the Rock My Soul choir and band (complete with horns!) for a spirit-soaring afternoon of "gospelized" Christmas carols and R&B- and doo-wop flavored arrangements of popular holiday favorites. Numbers range from high-energy, emotionally charged arrangements of familiar songs such as "White Christmas," "Joy to the World," and "O Holy Night" to the less familiar but no less inspiring "'Behold That Star" and a rendition of  "Merry Christmas, Baby" inspired by Otis Redding. In contrast, introspective carols such as a Temptations arrangement of  "Silent Night" will also be performed. A magical and uplifting afternoon for all!

    Tracy Grammer CD Release with Jim Henry


    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.
