His latest album, “Gurf Morlix Finds the Present Tense,” is a work he considered to be very tense and showcases the music of a performer who has seen plenty of ups and downs.
So, how did the gray-haired and rugged Morlix come up with a name like Gurf?
“My parents were eccentric. It took a long time but now I feel I have earned the name.”
On Sunday he’ll be busy earning the praise and applause of patrons at the Elk Creek Café for a show that showcases his signature style of performing.
“People will hear the songs and the stories I tell,” he said. “They should expect to be moved, to laugh, cry. To feel something.”
