Sarah Morris Trio
Over the last five years, singer-songwriter Sarah Morris has earned a reputation for engaging performances, with a voice both clear and lush. Sarah hails from Minneapolis, Minnesota, where from a young age, she immersed herself in her parent's eclectic record collection before finally falling in love with the storytelling and songcraft in country music. Spending a few years in Music City instilled a traditional songwriting sensibility that earned her 2015 album Ordinary Things international airplay and critical acclaim. With the release of her third album, Hearts in Need of Repair, Sarah offers 11 new songs spanning the Americana sonosphere. Returning to RiverRock Studios in Minneapolis, Sarah co-produced the album of Eric Blomquist. Longtime bandmates Thomas Nordlund, Andrew Foreman, and Zachary Schmidt joined them in the studio, laying a foundation that blends folk-rock and country influences. Hearts In Need of Repair showcases Sarah's signature vocals and conversational lyricism, exploring vulnerability, heartbreak, and grown-up, imperfect love.
Please Note: In an effort to create the listening room environment, we ask all guests in the main room to limit conversation during the performance. Guests looking for casual dining and conversation may be seated in the adjoining Mountain View Grill.
