Sally Anne Morgan plays haunting psychedelic Appalachian folk drone that invokes the rhododendron thickets, creeks and mountains of her local landscape in Western North Carolina. Sally plays with the Black Twig Pickers and House and Land, both groups that have been established as dedicated practitioners of traditional music re-cast and shaped by appreciation of modern improvisation, minimalism, microtonality and drone based music from across the globe. Thriving in the in-betweenness of two worlds, Sally is among those who prove that the exploration of the outmost bounds of sound and the exploration of the ancientness rooted in traditional music aren’t as different as one might think. She weaves her fiddle, guitar and banjo playing with voice, percussion, and other drone elements to create something that spans both the ecstatic abandon and the simple spaciousness that music can have. Her new solo endeavor Thread is out on Thrill Jockey on June 19, 2020 forms an interweaving of original and traditional folk and experimental music.
