Two new arrivals today from Grace Griffith to complete my discography of her works.

Nancy who, you say? Maybe not a household name but well known in the business. Grace started her musical career with an Irish band called ‘The Hags’ as the lead singer in the late 70’s early 80’s and toured the college circuit.

When she left the band to start her solo career she was replaced by… Wait for it…Mary Chapin Carpenter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Chapin_Carpenter

Grace is also credited for introducing Eva Cassidy to Blix Street records. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eva_Cassidy

In 1998, Grace was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

If you’re in the mood for some celtic folk, give it a listen.
