Matthew Byrne: An Evening of Traditional Newfoundland Music @ New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center | New Bedford | Massachusetts | United States

Join us for an intimate evening of traditional Newfoundland Music featuring Matthew Byrne. Born into a family of Newfoundland music makers, his repertoire is heavily influenced by his unique musical lineage. This tradition thrives on the song, the weaving of a great story with a beautiful melody, and Matthew’s music reminds us how satisfying traditional songs can be when stripped down to these basic elements. His live performance offers honest interpretations of folk songs delivered with polished guitar work and powerful vocals. His repertoire transcends time and place with traditional songs from both sides of the Atlantic.
