Cary Morin Duo
February 10, 2023 @ 8:00 pm$20 – $25
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.”
Along with his life partner, Celeste Di Iorio, together they form the Cary Morin Duo. Celeste has her own history in the world of performance, having been involved in dance, theater and music for many years. She is a vocalist and, as she would say, “a strummer on guitar”. Celeste has played and sung with Cary for over 11 years.
