Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bill Morrissey was an American folk singer/songwriter from New Hampshire. Many of his songs reflect the harsh realities of life in crumbling New England mill towns. Morrissey was born in Hartford, Connecticut. He seems to have found his craft and his own voice in the American country blues of Mississippi John Hurt and Robert Johnson, the pure country of Hank Williams, the Kansas City jazz of Count Basie and Lester Young, and the New York folk songwriters of the 1960s. His eponymous first album released in 1984 on the Reckless label, and then re-recorded for the Philo label, includes the song "Small Town on the River," a song about a small town in New Hampshire after the mill closes. Over the course of his long career, two of Morrissey's ten albums received Grammy nominations and several earned 4-star reviews in Rolling Stoneshow more
