Eddie Owen Presents: Scott Cook and Cary Morin
$20 advance ($24 day of show)
“As good a modern folkie as we have these days. A perfect voice for the genre. An understanding beyond the norm.”
“…beautifully written lyrics, intricate chordal patterns and a refreshing plain-spoken vocal clarity.”
Cook is one of the hardest-working DIY troubadours on the road today, averaging around 150 shows including a dozen festivals every year since 2007. All the hard miles notwithstanding, he still believes that songs can change your life, and your life can change the world.
“…great songs delivered by a band of the highest caliber South Louisiana musicians, just brimming with hooks, infectious rhythm and deep soul.”
“…the thing about Morin is his voice, textured and steady, is the glue holding the songs together. You’re not drawn to the vocals because they dominate the tracks – it’s the opposite.”
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 Cary’s style and technique…. If you haven’t heard him yet, you should. Try to remember that it’s 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.”
