Grace Morrison performs at the Historical Society
In what has become a sweet late-summer tradition, Grace Morrison performed at the Wareham Historical Society’s ice cream social on Monday night.
Morrison performed a mix of original songs and covers for the crowd. Members of the audience tapped their feet, and occasionally singing along.
“Old Cape Cod” by Patti Page was an especially big hit, surprising Morrison, who said she had never played it before.
Another hit with the crowd was Morrison’s song “Just Loving You,” which she co-wrote with Lori McKenna, a grammy-winning country singer and songwriter. The song was inspired by Morrison’s young son, who has several older step-sisters, and the love for his family that he was born with.
“Reasons,” Morrison’s most recent album, was released this year and nominated for the New England Music Award for Album of the Year. Morrison was also nominated for Roots Act of the Year.
Morrison is about to embark on a year of touring across the US and Canada. Tickets are now on sale for her only local date, an April 9 performance at the Zeiterion Theater in New Bedford (zeiterion.org).
