CAHALEN MORRISON RETURNS TO PRESTEIGNE
After an absence of four years, one of the most popular American singer/songwriters to have performed in Mid Wales returns to play in The Assembly Rooms, Presteigne on Sunday 19th June at 8pm.
Originally hailing from the high desert of Northern New Mexico, Cahalen Morrison has made a name for himself. Over the past decade touring solo, as a duo with Eli West, or with his roadhouse country 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 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. An insightful and poetic wordsmith and songwriter, a subtle and accomplished roots multi-instrumentalist and a captivating singer.
In April 2019, Cahalen went down to a remote village on the border of New Mexico and Colorado and holed up in an old adobe chapel along with Erick Jaskowiak, who had brought out a mobile recording rig. In just a day and a half, they tracked his next solo album Wealth of Sorrow, ten intimate songs of just Cahalen and his guitar and banjo.
Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10 and can be purchased for cash from The Workhouse, Presteigne, or booked by calling 01544 350407 or 01547 528315.
