A Short Biography
of Greg Morton

Greg Morton was born in Memphis, Tennessee.  He began to play the guitar when he was around 12 years of age.  His brother, Randal Morton, began to play the banjo at about the same time.  Greg and Randal were headliners at various bluegrass festivals around the country.

Greg's natural musical ability allowed him to quickly develop a mastery of the guitar.  While living in Memphis, Greg won the Midsouth Championship in guitar and mandolin.

After sharpening his skills playing traditional bluegrass music, Greg began to apply his talents to other musical styles, including country and jazz.

Greg has toured with several other musicians including Mark O'Connor and the White family.  Greg traveled around the world as a member of the USO.  At one point, he was a member of Don Ho's band in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Greg's travels eventually brought him to Tucson, Arizona.  Far from the hills of Tennessee, Greg found that the 'high lonesome' sounds of bluegrass music were already reverberating through the canyons of the Sonoran Desert in southern Arizona.  Tucson is home to a very active bluegrass music community.

In 1995, Greg Morton won the Arizona State Guitar Championship.  In 2001, 2002, and 2004, Greg won the extremely prestigious TAMMIES Award (Tucson Area Music Awards) for Best Acoustic Guitarist.  He was runner-up in 2003.  Greg's band, the "Greg Morton Trio", won the TAMMIES Award for Best Country & Western Band in 2003, and Best Bluegrass Band in 2004.

Today, Greg plays in various venues throughout southern Arizona.  He also teaches workshops for the aspiring musicians in the region.
