Tami has been producing and promoting live music in Durango since 1992. She started her career promoting music as the Station Manager of KDUR Community Radio in Durango, bringing music to the area via the Durango Society of Cultural and Performing Arts (now known as DAM – Durango Acoustic Music).
Some of her earliest promotions in the 90’s included producing Ani DiFranco, Ben Harper, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Keb Mo, the Blind Boys of Alabama, Leo Kottke, Bruce Cockburn, Greg Brown, and many, many more!
She has had several different production names, including “Purple Fringe Productions”, “Two Nice Girls”, “Bad Girls Productions” with former business partner Felicity Broennan, who sadly has moved to Santa Fe, and has now settled on “Tami Graham Presents”…a tip of the hat to Bill Graham Presents and Bill’s infamous and stellar promotions of live music in San Francisco in the 60’s and 70’s.
When not producing music, Tami is busy promoting and acting in the Salt Fire Circus in Durango, recently produced “Twenty Four Pounds of Bullets & Steel”, a cowgirl opera; and is a professional mediator, trainer and facilitator.
She lives on a ranch in Mancos, Colorado and is a 5th generation Coloradoan!
