CONCERT: Sat, Dec 6. 1PM, No charge

Colthup hails from England and has been enjoying recent performances with the U.S. Rolling Stones. His NPR Library performance will include blues and pop, incorporate electro-acoustic guitar and demonstrate the versatility of the classical Spanish guitar. Colthup will discuss both his experiences in England as well as how American music played a pivotal role in his British upbringing.

He is joined by Tami Lynn, a legendary New Orleans soul singer, who has performed with the Rolling Stones, Dr John and many others, scoring a top ten hit on the UK Singles Chart in 1971, with the song “I’m Gonna Run Away From You.”

This is a 100 at 1PM Concert; 100 tickets will be given out at the front desk starting at 1PM, and these ticket holders will be seated first. We will then make every attempt to seat remaining audience members.

“Tracy Grammer is a brilliant artist and unique individual. Her voice is distinctive, as is her mastery over the instruments she plays.”
– Joan Baez

“Her pure voice conveys the simple truths of these songs; her gifts as a musician are like that of a painter who is a master of chiaroscuro, offering light and shadow at every turn.“ – Mary Chapin Carpenter

An eighteen minute mini concert with tracy at folk alliance in 2013:
