Art Beat and all folk music lovers lost a friend this summer when Dave Carter died unexpectedly while on tour. Tonight Art Beat pays tribute to Dave and Tracy Grammer, his partner in life and in song. Dave was rapidly gaining recognition around the country for his beautifully subtle songwriting. Joan Baez, who performed at his memorial, sings Dave’s song “The Mountain” and talks about his musical contributions.
