Soundhouse are bringing Cahalen Morrison to Edinburgh for a one off gig at Traverse.

Originally from New Mexico the Americana musician and songwriter has settled in Scotland after a decade of touring. Equally at home on guitar, banjo, mandolin, singing three part harmony or unaccompanied, he has carved out a place for himself as a unique voice in American music.

Cahalen Morrison said: “After a lengthy process, at the end of 2023 I relocated from the States to Edinburgh. Since the beginning of the pandemic I have spent a lot of time here so it feels great to finally make it official. I have always been deeply drawn to the music, arts, people and culture, so (despite the weather) it is a very warm feeling to finally be a resident. I played my first gig in Edinburgh in 2011 for  Douglas and Jane-Ann, so it feels full circle to start my musical journey as a resident in Scotland with them.  I am thrilled to be kicking off the new Soundhouse season at the Traverse Theatre.  I hope to see some new and familiar faces there.”  

Douglas Robertson and Jane-Ann Purdy, co-producers of this year’s Traverse One series said: “Cahalen is one of the most talented musicians and songwriters we have come across in the past two decades. We can think of no one finer to kick off our new Traverse One gig programme in 2024.”
