Steve Morrison’s Blues Abuse: 19th July 2014

Steve Morrison’s Blues Abuse
Saturday 19th July 2014
8pm (free entry)

Blues, the mother of all pop music
Blues Abuse, a chance to take it everywhere

Steve has played guitar all his life. The exploration of guitar music from such an early age has created a musician whose performances appear effortless and natural. He is a master of open-chord tunings and he has a bottleneck technique that is fluid, sweet and original.

Steve Morrison blends the driving rhythms of John Lee Hooker with the sweet slide-guitar of Ry Cooder to create a sound all his own. “In a better world this man would already be a legend.”
- Musician Magazine

While blues music has constantly inspired this musician his technique and writing style place him as an original. He openly confesses that as a poor copyist he quickly gave up looking to other guitarists for inspiration. Instead he looked to other instruments and used their influence to create his own sound.

“I have always loved blues music and consider all the old blues men & women to have been my teachers. But, more importantly they have been my inspiration and I remind myself they were at the cutting edge of music, ahead of their time, looking for something new, and creating the music of their age. Wow! What’s a poor white boy from London meant to do?”
- Steve Morrison
