Holiday Concert with Matt and Shannon Heaton @ Wamsutta Club | New Bedford | Massachusetts | United States

Celebrate the holidays with Matt & Shannon Heaton’s “Fine Winter’s Night,” featuring original and traditional Irish music to brighten chilly winter days and warm long winter nights. Come experience this special holiday concert, part of the Music in the Gallery concert series. For “Fine Winter’s Night”, Matt and Shannon Heaton present a banquet of songs dating from the 12th to the 21st century with husband-and-wife harmonies and instrumental accompaniment on guitar, bouzouki, Irish flute. The concert features a mix of poignancy, jubilance and reflection with songs about Victorian winter romance, the nativity and the introspective nature of the solstice, sprinkled with beautiful airs and upbeat jigs and reels. The Heaton originals sound like timeless traditional classics and their renditions of centuries-old Irish ballads often have inventive modern twists that resonate with listeners. The Boston Irish Reporter summed it: “Bringing us songs both sacred and reverent, Shannon’s voice is fresh and subtle like the first dusting of snow, while Matt’s light and sure guitar accompaniment sets the pace for a joyful sleighride…[They] lead us beyond familiar old songs but they don’t forsake them, either. Get those cookies into the oven and invite your loved ones to tea; Matt and Shannon have made music that reminds us of what the holidays are for.”
