Biography: Morwenna Lasko & Jay Pun
A sound that's hard to describe, yet impossible to forget. Some say Morwenna & Jay's music is acoustically based, but the reality is that it is infused with too many styles to define to a genre. Both graduates of Berklee College of Music, the Violin & Guitar duo started playing together in 2004 and have continued to push the boundaries of "acoustic" music. With the release of their highly anticipated 2nd CD, their sound keeps growing and keeps turning heads. A worldly mix of 12 brand new tunes, this album showcases new ground that one wouldn't think could come out of a Violin & Guitar. The CD features their signature duo sound, full band format, as well as a few special guest musicians such as legendary world artist Pierre Bensusan, soul singer Ezra Hamilton, and Dave Matthews Band trumpeter Rashawn Ross.The duo plans to tour throughout the U.S. as well as overseas and is excited to be bringing this music to new listeners.
“No matter what format we play in, whether it’s as a duo, trio, or full band we always feel that we convey the same message.”-Jay Pun
Together, they have shared shows with such greats as Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, Dave Matthews Band, The Duhks, Frank Vignola Quintet, Jesse Colin Young, Darol Anger, Ralph Stanley, Corey Harris, Avett Brothers, Ben Taylor, RobinElla and more. They've also had the great pleasure & honor to play at some wonderful festivals & clubs such as FloydFest, Bristol's Rhythm & Roots, The Prism Coffeehouse, Club Passim, Eddie's Attic, Down Home, and the list goes on…
