Together, David and Tracy Grisman will bring to Goddard an intimate exchange of colorful artistry. This duet mostly plays at home, but has performed at other unique venues and for causes such as SEVA, Fodfest (Friends of Daniel Pearl), Sweethearts of the Radio (Pt Reyes) and for the JYCC. They are very excited to come to Goddard College to perform on the Haybarn Theatre stage.

David Grisman is a brilliant mandolinist who is known far and wide for his unique sound, which combines elements of bluegrass, folk, jazz, Latin, gypsy, and swing into a genre he calls “Dawg Music.” A prolific musician, Grisman has recorded more than 40 albums (5 of which won Grammy nominations) with notables such as Jerry Garcia, the Grateful Dead, Bonnie Raitt, Linda Rondstadt, Stephane Grappelli, Earl Scruggs, James Taylor and Doc Watson.

A recent alumna of Goddard’s MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts Program in Port Townsend, WA, Tracy Grisman emerges from her transformative experience with a passion to engage in art that considers creative action in multiple mediums. As an interdisciplinary artist, her work might be painting an honorary portrait of an environmental activist to advocating for best waste practices in a Solid waste Advisory Committee meeting in her own town.  Tracy plays bass in the trio, “Stringology” and has played for the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience.  She was recorded as a guest singer on the Hot Club Sandwich CD, “No Pressure” and the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience CD, “Muddy Roads.”  Tracy co-produced and played rhythm guitar on a CD titled “Early Swing Now” with the Late Great Pete Toyne.

Her oil paintings and watercolors focus on musical scenes and musicians from the 1930’s and 1940’s and express her appreciation of the music from that era.

“I reminisce on the fact that the Goddard College pamphlet was the only one I brought home from the college fair back in 1977!  David and I want to support Goddard College because it is a unique and innovative program that offers a pedagogical platform of the perfect balance of freedom, structure and challenge. From my own experience, I can’t imagine a more creative, personal, inclusive, and relevant program.” ~ Tracy Grisman MFAIA ‘18
