Greg & Randal Morton Band
& Special Guests
SUNDAY, MAY 6th at 8 PM
There are not many folks alive who can say they’ve actually played with the great bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe, but Greg Morton is one of them. A flat picking guitarist who appears to make playing completely effortless, Morton has been gracing Tucson stages ever since he moved here almost 20 years ago. Since then, he has appeared at the Tucson Folk Festival many times. And, if you’ve frequented La Cocina on a Friday evening, you will already have experienced Greg’s unique style and sound.
Originally from Tennessee, Greg Morton won the Arizona State Guitar Championship in 1995. In 2001, 2002, and 2004, Greg won the extremely prestigious TAMMIES Award (Tucson Area Music Awards) for Best Acoustic Guitarist and was runner-up in 2003. Greg’s band, the “Greg Morton Trio”, won the TAMMIES Award for Best Country & Western Band in 2003, and Best Bluegrass Band in 2004.
TKMA is proud to announce that the Greg & Randal Morton Band will be our Local Headliner for the 33rd annual Tucson Folk Festival taking the stage on Sunday, May 6 at 8 p.m. Joining the Greg Morton Band on stage will be Greg’s twin brother Randal, and bassist Jim Stanley. (Look for other stellar players to be included in his band for that night, as well!)
