UPCOMING HOUSE CONCERTS
(Links go to the performers' websites.)

Tracy Grammer Sunday, October 21, 2018, 7pm -
Tracy Grammer


Suggested Donation: $20

Tracy Grammer is one of contemporary folk music's most beloved artists. Though she is widely renowned for her springwater-clear alto, perfectly intoned violin, and guitar playing that is by turns percussive and delicate, Grammer's stories, often described as "incantations," add a rare mixture of vulnerability, intimacy, and hard-won insight to Grammer's performances,. As one fan puts it, "With Tracy, it's never just about the music; it's a soul journey." 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 mid-tour. He was 49; Grammer, 34. Grammer is currently building a tour to celebrate the release of LOW TIDE, her first album of original songs. Co-produced with long-time touring partner Jim Henry, LOW TIDE was released January 19, 2108 on Grammer's own label, Tracy Grammer Music. We can't tell you how thrilled we are to be hosting a show for one of our favorite artists!

Rita Hosking Sunday, November 11, 2018, 7pm -
Rita Hosking with Sean Feder


Suggested Donation: $20

Rita Hosking's fierce and captivating country-folk voice sings of culture clash, dishes, forest fires, black holes, and hope. Her latest of six albums, the hero's-journey-themed “Frankie and the No-Go Road,” was praised by Maverick Magazine as having “more authenticity and integrity than you can shake a stick at.” With her stories and soul-stirring delivery, this “force of nature” (Fiddlefreak Folk Review) partners with Sean Feder on sparkling dobro and banjo to deliver what Acoustic Magazine calls “timeless, unhurried elegance.” Rita's style of country-folk has been lauded for story and sense of place, and her performances praised with capturing the audience. Honors include winner of the 2008 Dave Carter Memorial Songwriting Contest at the Sisters Folk Festival, finalist in the 2009 Telluride Music Festival Troubadour Contest, and honors in the International Songwriting Contest and West Coast Songwriters' Association.

Please note: "Russ & Julie's House Concerts" is simply the name we choose to describe our private parties, in our private home. These parties are NOT a business nor are they a business related activity. They are strictly a hobby for us, and are simply gatherings of our friends and guests to enjoy live acoustic music, fellowship, food (a potluck dessert buffet) and fun. Our concert parties are officially free (or else it might be considered a business), although voluntary contributions (suggested donation of $20 per person) are accepted at the party on behalf of the artists. 100% of all contributions go directly to the performers. By invitation only.
