About this Event
Cary Morin & Ghost Dog
Website | Facebook | YouTube
Colorado musicians Cary Morin (guitar, vocals), Celeste Di Iorio (harmony vocals), A.J. Fullerton (guitar & vocals), Luke Hunter (bass & vocals), and Jordan Pasquin (drums, percussion, & vocals) unite to form a high-energy roots rock band, intent on getting folks up and out of their seats!
Described as “one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today,” Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America like no other. With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Morin crafts an inimitable style often characterized as roots-infused Native Americana with hints of bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock. He has performed at renowned venues across the globe, including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.
" ‘Cary Morin is a unique and brilliant guitar player, songwriter and singer, ‘ says renowned folk musician David Bromberg, extolling the virtues of one of his favorite players. ‘It’s hard to pick out what he does best. As a guitar player, I have huge respect for Cary’s style and technique on the guitar. If you haven’t heard him yet, you should. Try to remember that it’s only one guitar.’ “ - Dan Forte for Taylor Wood & Steel Magazine, June 2018.

Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, The Black Keys, Patrick Sweany, North Mississippi Allstars, Robert Belfour, and many more.

Jordan Pasquin, a full-time performer and music educator in Northern Colorado, has been a life-long musician and has experience in a wide range of musical styles. Jordan is grateful for every second that he gets to spend behind the drums. “For me, music is a spiritual practice. It centers my mind and forces me to step outside of my own reality.” Jordan received his Bachelor's Degree in Drum Set Performance from Berklee College of Music and also plays with local band, Write Minded.
Celeste Di Iorio, having been involved in dance, theater, and music for many years, has worked both in bands and as a soloist. Her inspired vocals help shape the signature sound of Ghost Dog.
