August Summer Concert Series: Jack Grace

Friday, August 19, 2022 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Coming soon to Arts on the Lake

Jack Grace, Jerry Lee Lewis once likened to “that Cash kid, but good”, has enjoyed a long and varied career. Grace, a singer, songwriter, and guitarist who’s been touring and recording for over 25 years.


His duet with Norah Jones, “Bad Wind Blowing”, was a standout tune on his last recording, Everything I Say Is A Lie, produced by Joan Jett and Steve Earle’s former guitarist, Eric Ambel. He’s performed with a diverse collection of artists, like Doc Watson, Fishbone, Junior Brown, The Meters, and has even shared the bill with Merle Haggard.

Hanging out backstage with Haggard had a particular significance. When Jack handed over his 1947 Gibson acoustic to Merle to autograph, the country legend lifted the guitar into the air, saying, “I think I feel a few more songs in this one”.

He’s contributed tunes and scoring to several movies, including both Super Troopers, 1 and 2, the cult hit, Big Bear, as well as What I Drink and Who I Meet at the Track, heard in Beerfest.

Jack might be the only guy around to have a band in both Cambridge, UK, and Cambridge, MA. He has a stable of musicians stretching across North America, allowing him to team up with old pals in Canada, Austin, West Virginia, and elsewhere.

Jack has performed with:
• Gordon Lightfoot
•Merle Haggard
•The Meters
•Norah Jones
•Doc Watson
•Junior Brown
•Jerry Lee Lewis
• The Oak Ridge Boys
• Charlie Louvin (The Louvin Brothers)
• Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks
• Wayne Hancock


“NYC someday will brag about its great legends of country music, that’s right we said country, and among those names will be the engaging, hardworking, witty, and schmoozin’ and boozin’ Grace”. - Village Voice
