Morgan O’Kane plays banjo like no other. Originally hailing from Virginia, he currently resides in Brooklyn when he is not on tour, where he sometimes plays in the subway and on the street. The music is “to bluegrass and old timey what punk was to rock in the late seventies”. Deeply steeped in old traditions, O’Kane treats the banjo differently than you’ve heard it before and brings a punk sensibility to his music. Morgan O’Kane plays banjo, percussion suitcase and sings sumpin’ fierce. He is magically surrounded by exceptional musicians wherever he goes including Ferd Moyse (Hackensaw Boys) on Fiddle & Vocals and Ezekiel Healy on Dobro & Vocals. The latest album “The One They Call The Wind” does owe a lot to Morgan’s two prior album releases. The recent long player is a concise masterpiece of virtuosic musicianship, infinite spirit and unyielding passion.
