winniemih Obit: Dave Carter, 49, heart attack (1952-2002) (43) RE: OBIT: Dave Carter 20 Jul 02


I just saw this thread,not having heard this on the news , and I'm totally shocked. I live in the Portland OR area, and have gone to see Dave and Tracy perform many times when they've been in town ( which recently has not been very often, they've had a busy tour schedule). I have been in awe of the talent that emanates from both, but Dave as a songwriter was an incredible voice. I just saw them about a month ago at the Hillsboro farmers market, and thought Dave looked a bit stressed, very different from his appearance in a photo I took of them at the Canmore,Alberta folk festival last August. I remember commenting to Dave then about how relaxed he looked, and he replied that they had been having such a good time up in the Canadian Rockies, lots of time to "play". I gave a copy of the photo to them last month, and now have the duplicate sitting in full display. This is how I'll remember him, a big grin on his face, making beautiful music in a beautiful place (and on the same stage with Jesse Winchester). All this verbosity on my part is a reaction to my shock and sorrow. I think
