About the Event
The songs of Drunken Prayer have a big American sweep to them, with displaced characters, God, flowing rivers, hellraisers, fate, loss, grace and wandering. You can hear country, early rock, Bakersfield twang, blues and old-time all sifted through the music, but there’s also a delicate songwriting sophistication, with jazzy turnarounds, surprise modulated bridges and sudden stops. Drunken Prayer will likely bring to mind The Band for a lot of listeners, with the sense of history and tradition. But Morgan Geer’s songs and his singing often suggest a kinship with artists like Bobby Charles or Doug Sahm, musicians with Southern roots, with a yip and break to their voices, and notes of sadness offset by a sense of humor.
