Colorado musicians Cary Morin (guitar, vocals), Celeste Di Iorio (harmony vocals), Luke Hunter (bass & vocals), and Josh Vogeler (drums, percussion, & vocals) unite to form a high-energy roots rock band, intent on getting folks up and out of their seats!

Described as “one of the best acoustic pickers on the scene today,” Cary Morin brings together the great musical traditions of America like no other. With deft fingerstyle guitar and vocals that alternately convey melodic elation and gritty world-weariness, Morin crafts an inimitable style often characterized as roots-infused Native Americana with hints of bluegrass, folk, blues, and rock. He has performed at renowned venues across the globe, including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, and is the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.

“ ‘Cary Morin is a unique and brilliant guitar player, songwriter and singer, ‘ says renowned folk musician David Bromberg, extolling the virtues of one of his favorite players. ‘It’s hard to pick out what he does best. As a guitar player, I have huge respect for Cary’s style and technique on the guitar. If you haven’t heard him yet, you should. Try to remember that it’s only one guitar.’ “ - Dan Forte for Taylor Wood & Steel Magazine, June 2018.

Luke Hunter, a Colorado native, has been playing bass for over fifteen years. He has been the tour manager for local band, Write Minded, for the past two years and has worked in music production for fifteen plus years.

Josh Vogeler was formally trained as a percussionist in school bands while growing up in St. Louis. Frequent trips to New Orleans played a big role in the enrichment of his rhythmic sensibility. Home based in Colorado since 2002, Josh has not only made a name for himself as a drummer, but also as a guitar playing singer songwriter. He’s been drumming with House With a Yard since 2017 and recently joined Ghost Dog in 2023.

Celeste Di Iorio, having been involved in dance, theater, and music for many years, has worked both in bands and as a soloist. Her inspired vocals help shape the signature sound of Ghost Dog. A tribute to the American South, Morin’s seventh solo release, Dockside Saints, merges Cary’s celebrated style of Native Americana with the spirit and sounds of Cajun, Creole and Zydeco music. The album was produced and engineered by multi-Grammy winner Tony Daigle at the renowned Dockside Studio. Listen at DocksideSaints.com. When I Rise won the 2019 Indigenous Music Award for Best Blues CD. Cary has won numerous awards for his work, particularly for his 2017 release, Cradle to the Grave.
