  4. Tracy Grammer, writer and musician, is pleased to present words+music — a captivating, intimate show featuring readings from her memoir-in-progress interspersed with songs on violin and guitar. Grammer rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1997-2002, the duo released three celebrated, chart-topping albums featuring Carter's mytho-poetic Americana songcraft, and toured internationally, including five weeks as Joan Baez’s bandmates. Off-stage, Carter and Grammer were romantically involved — a fact they coyly avoided by referring to themselves in interviews as “partners in all things." In 2000, just as the music was gaining traction, Carter revealed to Grammer a lifetime struggle with gender dysphoria, and an intention to transition. This impacted the duo’s off stage romance and became an issue they would struggle with privately until the summer of 2002, when Grammer faced an even greater reckoning — Carter’s sudden death. In words+music, Grammer offers honest, poignant, often humorous glimpses into the journey with, and without, Carter. The content varies nightly but has addressed such topics as grief, transgender issues, bad British accents, life on the road, public versus private selves, and starting over.
