Born into a family of Newfoundland music makers, Matthew Byrne’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’s music has traveled 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 Byrne releases his highly-anticipated third album, Horizon Lines on August 11, 2017. This newest collection of traditional material explores a unique repertoire of songs from both sides of the Atlantic and continues Byrne’s journey through his own unique musical lineage.

Also on the bill is Gabriel Dubreuil and Early Spirit. J Knutson (from Spirit of the West) and Gabriel Dubreuil have teamed up with Ben Kelly (from Fish & Bird) and Will Ross to bring an innovative fusion of music from the Celtic and North American fiddle traditions and jazz to the stage. They honour the spontaneity of improvised music while keeping the intimacy and pace of Celtic music and songs from early days of Spirit of the West. Described as “fast-rising” (The Georgia Straight) and a “coup-de-coeur” (Radio-Canada/CBC) Early Spirit sails its way into your heart and soul.
