BIOGRAPHY

Tammy Morris has been singing and playing music for 50 years, enjoying all styles and types of music…well maybe not Death Metal!


Before Covid, she was very active as a member of the dance group, Crosswinds, along with her husband Gary Morris, who is the owner/operator of Morris Music and Prime Time Studios. She and her husband are also involved in a local country show, The Sussex Valley Jamboree and are both members of the New Brunswick Country Music Hall of Fame.


Tammy is also very involved in many types of theatre, including children’s theatre, and (again, before Covid) has performed in productions for Kidstuff Theatre as a member of Class Act, for the past 30 years.


She enjoyed a 31- year career as a music teacher in Anglophone South, organizing many choirs and theatrical productions. Her students often participated in local music and drama festivals and even appeared on television several times as part of the Empty Stocking Fund broadcast. She has also taught private music lessons for the past 30 years. Though retired, she continues to be a substitute teacher and has a private music studio of approximately 25 students. There is nothing she enjoys more than making music and having fun with kids!
