Appearing with her musical director and close friend Gerry Leonard, she already promised a unique and exciting event on August 10 in the cozy, intimate spaces of the Opera House. Now Tracy Grammer has just been added to the bill, rounding out a night of remarkable singer-songwriters.
Tickets available online or at the door.
Vega is of course known for her hit song Luka, but has been a long-time and prominent member of the must-see list of concert performers. She has regularly released excellent albums over the years, never compromising her original sound. Her vibrato-less singing style is instantly recognizable as hers alone, and is almost like a speaking conversation with the listener.
Tracy Grammer is currently touring promoting songs that were the core of the music she performed with longtime partner Dave Carter, who passed away 10 years ago this summer. But she is no less compelling as an artist, and it is a particular pleasure that she should appear on the bill with Suzanne Vega.
It was a great show – here’s a taste!
On Friday, August 17 the Opera House presents another night to remember with Cowboy Junkies coming to town. First known for their late 80’s recordings in an old church that became the Trinity Sessions, they have produced some of the most consisent and beloved music out there, with classics like Common Disaster and Black-Eyed Man.
With a career spanning 20 years and over a dozen releases, Cowboy Junkies have the ability to lay back with Margo Timmins‘ instantly recognizable vocals, or she and brother Michael Timmins lead the group in just plain rocking out.
