Grace Morrison began her musical journey studying piano at the tender age of five. At twelve she discovered the group Hansen and said “I can do that!”. She taught herself how to play the guitar, started writing songs, and two years later found herself opening for some of the best folk acts in New England.

Within the next few years, Grace had written over two hundred songs and was performing full time. Just after graduating high school, she went on tour with some legends of rock as her backup band including Chris Slade of AC/DC and The Firm, Greg Douglass of The Steve Miller Band, Joey Molland of Badfinger, Carmine Appice of Vanilla Fudge, and Jimmy Baine of Dio. Not long after, Grace sang backup for Eddie Money.

Grace’s musical education then went from the school of hard knocks to the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where she studied jazz voice and piano. It is there where she developed her fascination with history, which began to inform her writing. After college, she began performing at a local Renaissance Faire, which led to the writing of ‘Old Adam’ and ‘I See Spain’ (songs about Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I).

Grammy nominated recording engineer John Mailloux of Bongo Beach Productions says “Grace’s voice is a reflection of herself — pure and true. She is an incredible talent mixing seemingly effortless musicality and original storytelling in the Folk and Americana genres.”

Grace teaches a studio of 70 private music students by day, and by night performs with the RSO, solo, and with her new cover band TGI 90′s. Grace’s vocal styling captivates audiences with her articulate and engaging performances. You do not want to miss this fetching artist!

The Whiskey Boys

The Whiskey Boys are a Boston based modern Bluegrass and Americana band led by Berklee graduate, David Delaney. They tour the Northeast and have sold out such notable folk venues as the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge, MA and the Firebox in Hartford, CT.  They have opened for national acts such as Lori McKenna, Man Man, and four-time Grammy nominated country artist, Trace Adkins.

The Whiskey Boys performed at the Berklee International Folk Festival in 2009, Joe’s Pub’s 2010 and 2011 Make Music New York Festivals, the 2011 and 2012 New England Americana Festivals, the 2012 Jamaica Plain Music Festival, the 2012 North Branch Bluegrass Festival, the 2013 Bluegrass on the Bogs Festival and the 2013 Down Home Up Here Bluegrass Festival.

In 2010, they were the featured entertainment at the National Governor’s Association annual conference held at Fenway Park, and in 2011 and 2012, the Whiskey Boys were selected as the premiere country act at the Music Mountain Chamber Music Festival where, in 2012, they were joined by Banjo player Pete Kelly, formerly of Michael Cleveland and Flamekeeper.
