Described as one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today, Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America like no other. With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Morin crafts an inimitable style often characterized as roots-infused Native Americana with hints of bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock. He has performed at renowned venues across the globe, including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades. David Bromberg remarks, Cary Morin is a unique and brilliant guitar player, songwriter and singer. As a guitar player, I have huge respect for Carys style and technique
. If you havent heard him yet, you should. Try to remember that its only one guitar. Music critic Bill Hurley writes, His guitar skill is jaw-dropping, his voice is warm, worn of world experience, and his songwriting allows both of those things to flourish and captivate anyone in the room.
A tribute to the American South, Morins seventh solo release, Dockside Saints, merges Carys celebrated brand of Americana with the spirit and sounds of Cajun, Creole and Zydeco music. The album was produced and engineered by multi-Grammy winner Tony Daigle at the renowned Dockside Studio.
Adding to his many awards, in 2019, Cary Morin took home an Indigenous Music Award for Best Blues CD for the second time. He has collaborated with, shared the stage with, or opened for Los Lobos, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Osborne, David Bromberg, Arlo Guthrie, Tony Trishka, Guy Davis, David Wilcox, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Spencer Bohren, Charlie Musslewhite, and other music legends.
A Crow tribal member, Morin was raised in Great Falls, Montana. When not touring the US and Europe, he calls Northern Colorado home.
