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 old time music 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 old time 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. O’Kane and Healy pay tribute to a simpler time in America’s history with craftsmanship and an unyielding passion that rarely seen in modern country, bluegrass, and beyond.
