Event description

Description

Matthew Byrne is a traditional singer, storyteller, and guitar player with a repertoire shaped by his musical upbringing. He supports his tradition with powerful vocals, polished guitar work, and a presence that fills the room.

His music has travelled well beyond the rugged shores of his Newfoundland home since his 2010 debut, Ballads. Touring as both a solo artist as well as singer with The Dardanelles, he has graced major festival stages worldwide. With his second album, Hearts & Heroes, receiving Traditional Recording of the Year at the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards, Byrne has established himself as one of Canada’s most authentic and vital traditional voices.

Matthew is currently supporting his newest release, Horizon Lines - a collection of traditional material from both sides of the Atlantic that continues Byrne’s journey through his own unique musical lineage. This album won Traditional Recording of the Year at the 2018 Canadian Folk Music Awards. Having received this distinction for a second time, Matthew Byrne continues to establish himself as one of today’s most authentic and vital traditional voices.

“It’s increasingly rare to find male traditional singers who are not just good, but GREAT! Matthew is certainly in that truly great category.” ~ BRIAN O’DONOVAN, WGBH BOSTON

“Possibly the finest interpreter of traditional songs in the country.” ~ PENGUIN EGGS MAGAZINE

“His reverence and respect for his material, along with his unabashed exploration of new songs and his staggeringly beautiful voice, makes for the rarest and most vital folk performer." ~ TOM POWER, CBC MUSIC

“A voice as true as a compass needle.” ~ JAMES KEELAGHAN
