Dave Carter with Tracy Grammer

Style:All-original, sorta-mystical, contemporary Texas Folk
Began performing: 1996
Stomping grounds : Portland, Oregon

Called the "Carlos Castaneda of Country" and often compared to Townes van Zandt, Carter conjures the voices of spirits who wander the deserted highways of a lost America, weaving living tapestries of sound upon which those wild and wandering souls come to life. Intricate arrangements and talented multi-instrumentalists make this one of the most interesting and soulful folk/country acts around. [--Red River Records]
