NISSWA — Minneapolis-based singer-songwriter Sarah Morris comes to Grassroots Concerts in Nisswa on Friday, Oct. 28.

Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the Live Well Nightclub and Coffee Bar at the Journey Church. The 90-minute concert is held without intermission.

Morris’s songs encourage audiences to pull away from the big picture and get caught up in the magic to escape into stories at once hauntingly familiar and uniquely her own.

Inclined toward the intimacy of live performance, Morris spends a remarkable amount of time on stage. Whether solo, backed by the country kick of her longtime band The Sometimes Guys, as half of the duo The Home Fires with Vicky Emerson or hosting local and traveling musicians live online from her big green bathroom, her playful-hearted presence is captivating and contagious.

In 2016, Morris was a top four finalist in the NewSong Music Contest at Lincoln Center in New York City, second place winner of the Chris Austin Songwriting Competition at MerleFest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, and an Americana semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition.


In 2018, she went on to win the Kerrville New Folk Competition, collecting an honorable mention at the Telluride Troubadour contest along the way.

Admission for general seating is $10 at the door for adults and $5 for children under 12.

For this season, masks are required for all audience members and volunteers. N-95 masks will be provided for those who need one.
