Sarah Morris Benefit Concert & 20th Season Kickoff

Help us kick off our 20th anniversary season with a wonderful show in a unique and inviting space. Sarah Morris will treat us to her signature sound, and join us in celebrating 20 years of empowering women's and (and now girls') voices. Proceeds will benefit TCWC and the Twin Cities Girls' Choir.

ABOUT SARAH: A polished and committed performer, Morris's hard work has paid off, propelling her into the national spotlight as a top 4 finalist in The NewSong Music Contest at Lincoln Center in NYC (January 2016). Also, her song "I Go Back" took 2nd place at the 2016 Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at MerleFest in Wilkseboro, NC, and the opening track of Ordinary Things, "Brighter" was a 2016 Americana semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Ordinary Things has spent the last 5 months on the AMA chart (Americana Music Association), reaching #85, and spending 4 weeks in the top 100. Sarah has opened for JD Souther, Suzy Bogguss, and Teddy Thompson & Kelly Jones, and is a favorite at prestigious venues such as The Dakota Jazz Club, The Aster and Vieux Carre. Recently, Sarah has begun to tour in support of her album both with her band, and with fellow Americana artist, Vicky Emerson. Now on her 5th songwriting challenge, Sarah is already dreaming up her next album.

"Ordinary Things" transcends its title by a country mile. There is nothing ordinary about this feature length slice of pop-tinged, rustic Americana. With superb songwriting, great singings and a helluva backing band there is no doubt that Sarah Morris is primed to go far with this effort. —Randy Thomas, Indie Arts Alliance, 1/19/2016
