The songs, on which Grammer plays her trademark violin as well as guitar, were written by Carter but had never been recorded. In that way, Flower of Avalon is a tribute to Grammer's bandmate, a phenomenally talented songwriter who died at 49 of a sudden heart attack, in July of 2002.

Before that tragic end, the pair were a rising force in the world of folk music, touring with Joan Baez and gaining a following that extended into mainstream America. With Flowers, Grammer is giving fans another taste of their musical partnership.
