Cumbrae Promotions Presents: Morganway
Entry Requirements: 18+
Morganway are a six-piece from the East of England, founded by twin brothers Callum (vocals, guitar, bass) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar, backing vocals). Joined by SJ Mortimer (vocals), Nicole Terry (fiddle), Matt Brocklehurst (keys) and Ed Bullinger (drums), the band has developed a sound built on a love for multi-layered vocal harmonies, driven guitar riffs and distinctive fiddle flourishes, bound by raw, honest songwriting.
On August 2nd 2019 they released their debut self-titled album to rave reviews, with Maverick Magazine awarding it 5/5 and acclaimed music publication Rock’ N’ Reel’ magazine stating, “Morganway’s intoxicating mix of Americana and all its contributing influences takes the breath away”.
Inspired by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac and other classic guitar bands such as The Eagles and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Morganway have quickly built a name for themselves on the UK live circuit. They have already received accolades from Radio 2’s ‘Whispering’ Bob Harris, swathes of recognition from the country press, two nominations from the BCMA awards, along with support slots with The Shires, CC Smugglers, Wildwood Kin and Ferris & Sylvester. They’ve also made multiple festival appearances, including Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival, Black Deer, Country 2 Country and Lakefest.
Currently touring across the UK, Morganway will be supporting The CC Smuggers throughout the Autumn and Winter, with a full UK headline tour scheduled for February 2020. Their incendiary live shows have been blowing attendees away, and it’s hard not to come away a Morganway convert once you’ve seen what people are describing as “One of the most exciting prospects to appear on the scene.”

Review from Black Deer 2019
