Morgan has presented his personal "History of the Blues workshop" at the Kingston Limestone Blues Festival, the Fredericton Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival, the Saskatoon Blues Festival, and the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival.

Using music from his personal collection, interspersed with commentary and anecdotes along with audience participation, he takes folks on a journey spanning two continents and 80 years of recorded Blues. From African music to the "field hollers" of the southern U.S., from Mississippi to Chicago... from Georgia to Texas, Morgan illustrates regional styles as well as influences and interpretations from one artist to another, often using recorded snippets along with his own guitar.

Lasting about 90 minutes, every presentation has met with great success and enthusiastic interaction with the audience. Morgan's presentation a few years ago in Saskatoon was well received by those in attendance.
