The History of the Blues Workshop

Morgan has presented his personal "History of the Blues workshop" at the Kingston Limestone Blues Festival, the Fredericton Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, and the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival.

Using music from his personal collection, interspersed with commentary and anecdotes along with audience participation, he takes folks on a journey spanning two continents and 80 years of recorded Blues. From African music to the "field hollers" of the southern U.S., from Mississippi to Chicago... from Georgia to Texas, Morgan illustrates regional styles as well as influences and interpretations from one artist to another, often using recorded snippets along with his own guitar.

Lasting about 90 minutes, every presentation has met with great success and
enthusiastic interaction with the audience.

"This workshop is EXCEPTIONAL and our audiences loved it. Morgan brings along his encyclopedic knowledge of blues history and his enchanting story-telling, but I found myself fascinated by his mix of old pieces of music and his own stellar playing. I knew this workshop would have appeal for our audiences but I couldn't have guessed how many times, while sitting and listening, that I would find myself lost in the mystique and legends of the blues. Morgan makes the deep history of our music fun and real - this is a workshop we'll be having back here at Harvest again."
