An Evening with GREG MORTON and Jim Stanley

SUPPORT

Bluegrass guitarist Greg Morton has spent most of his life on a stage, starting in his teens he could be found playing bluegrass festivals opening for big-name artists including John Hartford, Chet Atkins, Bill Monroe, Mark O’Connor and more. In his 20’s he signed on with USO tours to the Orient and Europe, entertaining troops and playing with country and bluegrass greats along the way. For three years, he performed in Hawaii with The Don Ho Show, playing “‘Tiny Bubbles” every day.

Growing up in the hills of Tennessee, Greg grew up on traditional country and bluegrass and upon arriving in Tucson he found that the ‘high lonesome’ sounds of bluegrass music were already reverberating throughout southern Arizona. Greg’s twin brother, Randal Morton, of Memphis, is also well known musically – but as a banjo player. The Morton Twins occasionally reunite to perform at prestigious bluegrass and folk festivals.

Jim Stanley, the duo’s up-right bassist, and Morton have been playing music together collectively for 15 years, nine of those years have been holding down a weekly bluegrass gig at a popular Tucson eatery in downtown Tucson. Stanley has been a part of several bands and musical endeavors in Tucson, most recently he helped establish a club and sound studio in the former 17th St Farmers Market.
