Davy Ramone Morrison

Scottish composer, multi-instrumentalist, sculptor, tattoo designer, graphic artist, story-teller, and writer, Davey Ramone Morrison is a bit of a “Renaissance Man.”

Originally from from Airdrie, outside of Glasgow, Davy has been active as an artist for over 30 years. From a tough mining community, Davy left school to help support his family. As his father had been injured in a mining accident, Davy eventually found work in the local steel mill while playing bass guitar in a local punk band. Hence the “Ramone” moniker! He took up sculpting as a young man, while on injury leave from the mill. Davey continues to work today in that same medium… air-drying clay.

Musically, Davey progressed to a role as bass player for a Scottish Folk band the "Cuddies", then vocalist and bodhran player with the "Whiskey Devils," a group he co-founded. They had some commercial success including radio and television appearances as they toured Scotland.

A chance meeting with members of the Scottish tribal band Clan an Drumma led to him joining that group. Included in their US tours, Davey met his present-day wife and settled in West Virginia. After some years off to help raise a family, Davey took up his bodhran playing with Albannach, the widely popular Scottish tribal band. His signature richly, deep baritone voice and delightfully whimsical personality attracted many fans and friends who continue to support him in his solo career.

Currently, Davey is busy with many projects. He’s working on a tribute to Scotland’s National Bard, Rabbie Burns which is expected to be a combination of music and spoken word recitals. He’s newly intrigued with both the cigar box guitar and banjo as he continues to practice on his fave instruments… the penny whistle and Native American flutes.  And, of course Davey is still creating distinctive and unique clay sculptures.

Davey Ramone Morrison is a rare find, indeed.
