Matthew Byrne
Matthew ByrneStorytelling through song is a fundamental duty of traditional music and one that Matthew Byrne performs brilliantly. Born into a family of Newfoundland music makers, Matthew’s repertoire is heavily influenced by that unique musical lineage – the weaving of a great story with a beautiful melody – and he supports this tradition with powerful vocals, polished guitar work, and a presence that fills the room. His repertoire transcends time and place and his live performance reminds us how satisfying traditional songs can be when stripped down to their basic elements.

Matthew Byrne is currently recording his highly-anticipated third album - a deeper exploration of traditional material from both sides of the Atlantic. It will be released in Summer of 2017 with a cross-Canada tour planned for Fall.
