With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Cary Morin crafts an inimitable acoustic roots-infused style influenced by Americana, bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock music. A tribute to the American South, Cary’s seventh solo album “Dockside Saints” merges his celebrated style of Native Americana with the spirit and sounds of Cajun, Creole, and Zydeco music.
A Crow tribal member with Assiniboine Sioux and Black heritage, Cary was born in Billings, Montana, and currently lives in northern Colorado. He has performed at renowned venues around the world, including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and is the recipient of numerous awards, from NPR Music’s Best Live Sessions of 2020 to the 2017 and 2019 Indigenous Music Award for Best Blues CD. He has shared the stage with music legends such as Los Lobos, Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Osborne, Arlo Guthrie, Tony Trishka, and the Subdudes.
