Morgan O'Kane/Ezekiel Healy- Split 7”
Morgan O'Kane/Ezekiel Healy- Split 7”. From the deep roots of Americana comes the split 7" from banjo virtuoso Morgan O'Kane and multi-instrumentalist Ezekiel Healy. On "Trouble In Mind", O'Kane masterfully blends the sounds of mountain side Bluegrass with the rhythmic patterns of Celtic music to create a sound that is just as much unique as it is familiar. O'Kane's passionate vocal delivery runs parallel with the mesmerizing jangle of his banjo skill, only to be interrupted by the unorthodox use of a trumpet in this style of music. With Healy's "Dink's Song (Fare Thee Well) the same Bluegrass style is combined with the flavor of Mississippi born Delta Blues and seemingly improvised jazz breaks. Healy's gift of blending musical styles makes for the perfect soundtrack of American's diverse musical history. The passion and artistry runs throughout both songs as if the stories they are telling are equally as important as the instruments used to present them.
