Leon Morris, originaly from Canada, was an early bluegrass artist in the Washington DC area. He performed as a guitarist, singer sideman on a number of early studio projects — including some early solo recordings by Frank Wakefield (along with Winnie Winston and David Grisman on the Silver Belle label).
By the early 1960s, Leon had partnered with Buzz Busby, and their band released a string of 45 rpm singles until Buzz wound up back in jail for substance abuse problems. In the the 1970s and 1980s, Leon led his own band, “Leon Morris & Associates,” based out of Northern Virginia. The band released at least one album on the Old Homestead label, and toured extensively in the United States and Canada.
