We’re celebrating the Beams’ series first voyage around the sun with an ASU Kerr friend and fave, Rising Sun Daughter--the solo collaborative project of Grace Rolland. Her 2019 EP “I See Jane” landed among the top 10 PopMatters' folk albums of that year. Rolland has a long musical history, raised in a family of skilled musicians and music educators. Along with her serene, stirring voice, Rolland is classically trained on the cello, guitar and piano. Her history with ASU Kerr goes way back into her youth. Her father brought her to the venue to listen to his many bands and perform, and more recently she played with her beloved folk ensemble, Run Boy Run. Tune in live to chat, listen and toast to one year of livestreaming amazing Arizona musicians on Beams!
