We're very happy to announce the return of Newfoundland singer and guitarist Matthew Byrne to the Old Sod Society Stage. His last concert garnered rave reviews from all who were there, so we expect a good crowd on November 25th.

Perhaps the finest singer of traditional song to emerge in Canada in recent years, Matthew is also a great guitarist and an engaging, entertaining and articulate stage performer. Matthew Byrne was born into a family of Newfoundland music makers and 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 tasteful and 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.
