[FOLK] Posthumous releases are a bittersweet musical tradition predating even the three J’s (Jimi, Janis and Jim), sometimes revelatory, sometimes barrel-scraping. Thankfully, in the case of much-missed Portland folk bard Dave Carter, who died suddenly in 2002, the recordings discovered by his partner, Tracy Grammer, in their basement and released last year as Little Blue Egg don’t disappoint in the least. It’s wonderful to hear Carter’s sublime songwriting and genial singing again, matched as ever by Grammer’s vocal and instrumental prowess. She’s since released a limited EP, Joy My Love, featuring five more archival duo performances. You can bet Carter would’ve loved reedy-voiced, sweet-natured, thoughtful songwriter Adam Sweeney, who opens for Grammer tonight.
