Elliott Morris / Acoustic, Live Music

Fri 27Sep
9:00 PM

Note: This event has finished

 

With hundreds of gigs behind him, Elliott Morris has a formidable reputation as one of the hardest-working and most sought-after young artists on the acoustic scene.

The 22 year-old singer-songwriter began playing electric guitar when he was 11, but launched his solo set at 17, just a year after starting to explore the possibilities of the acoustic instrument. Elliott taps the strings and beats the guitar’s body to create an intricate spectacle, together with an original and unique sound integral his songs.

He has supported Erik Mongrain, Andy McKee, Frank Turner, Seth Lakeman, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Jim Bob (Carter USM), legendary Philadelphia soul groups The Stylistics and The Three Degrees, and revered folk veterans Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick. He gigs regularly with Dave McPherson (InMe) and has played many times with old friend, Ed Sheeran.

 

Newton Faulkner – “Wicked, awesome!”

Andy McKee – “Very nice!” • Martin Carthy – “Lovely playing”

Frank Turner – “You’ve got the tapping thing down man!”

Dave McPherson (InMe) – “Crazy s**t, he will give you an eargasm”

Dean Jackson – The Beat/BBC Introducing – “One of the most impressive guitarists to grace our studio for a very long time…a compelling listen – and mesmerizing to watch!

Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music – “Extraordinary…ludicrously youthful and absurdly talented”
