Originally a gritty, stripped-down North Mississippi Hill Country Blues tune recorded by R.L. Burnside in 1965. Cary Morin was attracted to the origins of acoustic blues and was drawn to Burnside's sound and driving guitar riffs.

Upon hearing Luther Dickinson's guitar take on the song, Cary imagined its transition from acoustic guitar to a larger electric band version of the song that incorporated some world groove, Reggae, and African sounds. Colorado musicians Cary Morin (guitar, vocals), Celeste Di Iorio (harmony 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.
