"Cahalen is making music the world needs" – Tim O'Brien
Originally hailing from the high desert of Northern New Mexico, Cahalen Morrisonhas recently settled in Scotland. This is great news for us and our audiences as he is one of the most talented musicians and songwriters we have come across in the past two decades. We can think of no one finer to kick off our new Traverse 1 gig programme.
Over the past decade touring solo, as a duo with Eli West, or with his band Western Centuries, Cahalen has played shows and festivals all over the world and performed on stage with the likes of Tim O’Brien, Kelly Joe Phelps, Hot Rize, Crooked Still, Transatlantic Sessions and Kris Drever. Equally at home on guitar, banjo, mandolin, singing three part harmony or unaccompanied, he has carved out a place for himself as a unique voice in American music.
Cahalen has played all over the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland and much of Western Europe, and at festivals such as MerleFest, Red Wing Roots, Rockygrass, Wintergrass, Celebrate Brooklyn!, Strawberry Music Festival, Sisters Folk Festival, Meadowgrass, Timber!, Shetland Folk Festival, Larmer Tree, Kilkenny Roots Festival, Edinburgh Tradfest, Celtic Connections, Bluegrass Jamboree…
With special guest: Cera Impala.
