“A man and a guitar, a lot of soul, and an understanding of the history of soulful men with guitars in American music can sometimes achieve this kind of timelessness in their work – if they have the chops. Cary Morin has the chops and is one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today. There are performances on “Streamline” that would stand out, variously, among the old-school delta blues pliers, the Greenwich Village folk crowd at the end of the 1950s, the back-to-nature bards of the late ’60s, or today’s thriving singer/songwriter scene. Morin references all these styles: they’re in his vocabulary, but he’s no dilettante. His engaging sound is his alone…”
Co-Host of Folk Salad 89.5 Public Radio Tulsa
Cary has been described as acoustic Native Americana Fingerstyle Blues; with strong qualities of jam, reggae, jazz, blues, bluegrass and dance. Tim Duffy, president of Music maker Relief Foundation, describes Morin as a “brilliant guitarist, heartfelt songwriter and soulful singer whose music gives us pause to reflect on life’s great rewards.”
Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of American and beyond like no other, from the rocking, electrified world groove of The Atoll, to the pared-down acoustic blues of Sing It Louder and Streamline, which showcases Morin’s deft fingerstyle guitar.Cary is the International Blues Challenge 2013 Colorado Solo Champion and a 2014 semi finalist for The International Blues Challenge. He currently performs as a solo artist, with Young Ancients, and Pura Fe Trio.
