Amazing Grace Griffith


December 19, 1996|By J.D. Considine

Making ends meet as a professional musician is tough enough, but a few hearty souls actually make a go of two simultaneous careers. Grace Griffith is one such singer. On her own, she bridges British and American folk traditions with impressive ease (just listen to the magic she works with George Gershwin's "Summertime" on her solo album, "Grace"). But when she works with Cathy Palmer in Connemara, she leans much more to the Celtic side of things, stressing traditional folk tunes and recording with the likes of accordion whiz Billy McComisky.

Griffith and Connemara will perform a Christmas concert on Saturday, at St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 1101 Bay Ridge Ave. in Annapolis. Tickets are $10 and available at the door only. Call (410) 267-9394 for further information.
