Event

Morgan O'Kane
Every so often, just when you think the well is dry and the tradition is dead, you are gratefully reminded that there is still water down there and that the tradition was only sleeping. Morgan O'Kane from Charlottesville, Virginia is one of those reminders. A virtuoso banjo player, shouter and activist now based in New York City, Morgan recalls two other transplanted legendary southern artists; Reverend Gary Davis and Aunt Molly Jackson. Like the reverend, Morgan honed his skills making a living as a busking street artist. Like Aunt Molly, he has kept his connection to his Appalachian home and its issues, taking part in the campaign to ban mountaintop removal mining, which destroys the land and the people who live on it.

While Morgan O'Kane clearly knows his way around the old tunes, he is more interested in creating his own. That's how the tradition survives  new songs being created on old foundations. This ain't no revival; this is a contemporary artist who knows where he comes from. He tours with an amalgam of virtuosic musicians including; New York City's Dobro genius, Zeke Healy  New Orleans based, Leyla McCalla on Cello, and Ferd Moyse the IV on fiddle (of the Hackensaw Boys) amongst others. He is also comfortable playing solo, with a sort of one man band percussion set up complimenting his banjo. He has released two albums in as many years on Dollartone, Nine Lives in 2010 and Pendulum in 2011.  A third release is anticipated soon.
