  Sumner Knight Concerts: Dave Dersham
Keene - Dave is a wanderer: He spent a summer working the local chuck wagon set beneath Wyoming's Grand Tetons; taught Environmental Education in South Dakota's Black Hills; conducted 3 week treks with under-served youth across southern Idaho; and explored the ruins and culture of Central America. Music finally pulled him back to the confines of New England and the Cambridge, MA folk scene where he completed his first CD, 'The Burn of Summer.' The album enjoyed regular airtime on Folk Radio's WUMB, Emerson College's WERS, and brought selection as a finalist for Mountain Stage's emerging artists. Dave's second album, 'Gilding the Lilies' was recorded with the assistance of Boston's most adventurous lap-steele players, Lloyd Thayer, as well as the shrewd lead-playing and production of Jared Fiske of Fiske and Herrera. The CD was released in the fall of 2011 and was distributed internationally. He is currently working on material for his third CD to be released in the near future. Dave also continues a yearly pil

  Grammer w/ Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richard
Keene - racy 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 while the duo was on tour. He was 49; Grammer, 34. Determined to honor the duo's journey and bring Carter's songs, and those of other favorite writers, to broader audiences, Grammer has kept to the road, releasing solo albums as well as selections from the Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer archives. Her latest release, LITTLE BLUE EGG, is a collection of intimate recordings from the duo's home studios. LBE was the #1 most-played album on Folk Radio in 2012, and once again, the duo were the #1 most-played artists for the year. Grammer
