Sarah Morris

Saturday, April 26, 2014 / 10:30 pm

Sarah Morris captivates audiences with songs about the highs and lows of love. Her lyrics have the unflinching honesty and poetic tenderness suggestive of Karen Carpenter, sung with a strength and softness reminiscent of Norah Jones. Having spent several years honing her skills in Nashville, Sarah is now a regular in the Twin Cities music scene. Her country sensibility is enriched with her classical music roots producing a unique sound that, as she calls it, is "a little twang and a lot of heart."
