Morrigan (Christine Marie Condo) was born in Washington D.C. and
raised in Vienna, Virginia. Her first solo appearance on a stage
was the age of eight, when she stunned her parents with her fearless
presence and clear, powerful voice. At age eleven, >Morrigan
started writing music shaped by her exposure to music by James Taylor
and Dan Fogelberg. By high school, Morrigan was singing everywhere
from athletic events to musicals, and receiving yearly awards at
the local, regional and state levels.
Morrigan's overused vocal cords became severely damaged and a doctor
warned that she would never be able to sing professionally. After
five years of withdrawal, she began retraining her weakened voice
in spite of the warnings she had received.
In 1997, that work paid off. Morrigan became a lead singer in a
revue of popular music at a theme park in Richmond. She performed
over 300 shows from March to October. Afterward, Morrigan picked
up her guitar and started writing music again, taking her original
songs to open mics in the Washington area. By the Fall of 2001,
Morrigan went into the studio to record her CD "Unbearably
Sweet". She quickly gained traction in the local DC music
scene garnering well deserved accolades and audiences of increasing
size. >Please welcome Morrigan
to her first appearance at Rappahannock Coffee.
