Breakthrough The "Pierrots" went to London in December 1893 for a performance at the Prince's Hall. His fame was instant, followed by numerous private engagements. The following months, he performed at St. James's Hall together with the Moore and Burgess Minstrels. That summer, Morley re-formed the Royal Osborne Minstrels and they appeared in Colwyn Bay. In 1896, he once again joined the Clifford Essex Royal Pierrots - the word "Royal" was added when the "Pierrots" had performed before Royalty - and they appeared at Folkestone. He stayed with them for the next thirteen years and during that period he met the American banjo player Vess Ossman who happened to be in London for an appearance. Morley became influenced by that meeting and bought himself a five-string banjo with frets and eventually learned to play it. Later in 1909, he became a member of Will Pepper's White Coons. Three years later, Morley conducted the Palladium Minstrels, composed of 34 banjoists at the London Palladium minstrel show. In 1914, he joined Alec Hurley's The Jesters touring Ireland. During World War I, Morley entertained the troops at Aldershot and Salisbury, as well as abroad in Cologne and Koblenz. Later career Morley began to make recordings with the banjo player Olly Oakley for Pathé Records.Out of all records he made, he only made one solo record on Homochord label: Jovial Huntsman and Donkey Laugh. In August 1932, he made his radio debut as a banjo soloist. Five months later, he went on the air with the Kentucky Minstrels. Morley who never married, died at the Lambeth Hospital in London. " />
