Grace Morrison and The RSO are an Americana indie-folk quintet. The Boston-based band consists of Grace Morrison (lead vocals, acoustic guitar, accordion), Benjamin Moniz (guitar, mandolin, banjo, vocals), Max Judelson (vocals, bass), Marta Rymer (violin, vocals), and Nate Tucker (cajón, percussion). The band formed in 2010, emerging out of the fertile New England music scene. All five musicians are classically trained. Their debut self-titled CD was released in the fall of 2012 and is now available on ITunes and CD Baby.
Grace and The RSO use folk and bluegrass instrumentation to tell the stories of early Ireland and England, songs of heroes and villains, kings and queens, and the legends that follow. Their vocal harmonies organically blend together with a down to earth and refreshing sound, as evident in the lead single "Stuck on You." Much of Grace's lyrical content is taken straight from the pages of history. She playfully tells these stories and more during the band's live performances and the fans love it!
RAT RUCKUS opens for Grace and The RSO. Once upon a time there were five musicians who refused to be confined by genres or expectations of their instruments. They began to jam and a mellifluous sound rose and rang throughout the land: the ruckus of the rats. Influenced by everything from jazz to punk, and based deep in the woods of northwestern RI, Rat Ruckus is Matt Kennelly (banjo/guitar), Sequoyah Kennedy (sax/mandolin), Kevin O'Keefe (bull fiddle), Chris Montecalvo (drums), and Ben Boisclair (electric guitar).
