Briand Morrison's Blues Galaxy CD Release Concert

Join friends and neighbors to celebrate new work of gifted local composer/guitarist Briand Morrison!

Briand Morrison's Blues Galaxy - CD Release Concert

September 20 - 7:30 PM

Arrowhead Center for the Arts, 51 W. 5th St. Grand Marais

Tickets $10 adults, $5 youth (18 & under) For sale in advance (no fees) at or at door (box office opens 6:30 PM)

Guitarist and composer BRIAND MORRISON of Grand Portage, MN, through funding from the MN State Arts Board and partnership with the North Shore Music Association, composed twelve original jazz, rock, and blues numbers for guitar and an array of backing instruments and vocals. Having recorded this material at his studio with several other regional musicians and produced a full-length album, Morrison will release his CD at a concert featuring him and many musician friends.

Morrison was inspired to play to jazz guitar as a young teenager, when he heard Joe Pass play on the album Portraits of Duke Ellington. "I couldn't believe my ears," he says. "Jazz, I thought, really can be played on guitar." Also influenced by Tal Farlo, Kenny Burrell, D'Jango Reinhardt, John McLaughlin, George Benson, Pat Martino, Steve Kahn, John Abercrombie, and his all-time favorite, Wes Montgomery, he wanted to study guitar seriously.

He began studying with Dave Pederson at the West Bank School of Music in Minneapolis, learning technique and theory. After studying for two years with Pederson, Morrison was hired, at sixteen years old, by the West Bank School of Music as a rock guitar teacher. His special skill, he says, "was the ability to learn, transcribe, and teach a song to a student in one half-hour lesson."
