Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry are coming to Ashfield Community Hall, 521 Main St. in Ashfield, for a June 15 concert organized by Maude’s Closet Concerts. The performance will start at 7:30 p.m.

The Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry duo is billed as synonymous with impeccable musicianship, tight harmonies, a diverse repertoire, and the kind of musical chemistry and humorous banter you’d expect from musicians who have been touring together for more than a decade.

A typical show features original songs by each artist, including Henry’s “Home to Me,” a tribute to the Pioneer Valley; Grammer’s “Good Life,” a song in honor of her late father; at least one sassy mandolin/fiddle instrumental; and highlights from Dave Carter’s award-winning catalog (“The Mountain,” “Crocodile Man,” “Gentle Arms of Eden”). Past set lists have included songs by The Decemberists, Tom Russell, Crowded House, Kieran Kane, Woody Guthrie, Brandi Carlile and Lucinda Williams.

Advance tickets for the show are $17 for adults and $8 for children under 13. Tickets will be $20 and $10, respectively, on the day of the show.

Tickets are available at Elmer’s Store in Ashfield, World Eye Bookshop in Greenfield and Broadside Books in Northampton, and can be purchased online at www.brownpapertickets.com.
