The best performing songwriters, the ones who sound like they really mean what they’re singing about, tend to come from areas known for hard times and hard work. Like the rural blue-collar village of Perth-Andover in the Canadian Maritime province of New Brunswick – the home of acclaimed singer-songwriter and guitarist Matt Andersen.
The Times has called him “Canada’s greatest guitarist”, he played the prestigious East Coast Music Awards, and in 2010 he became the first Canadian to win Memphis’s famed International Blues Challenge, which led to festival dates in France, Italy, and the US.
Matt Andersen’s music, with his imposing voice and slashing slide guitar, addresses the difficult lives of working people. He performs more than 200 shows a year and in 2011 won the Maple Blues Awards for Entertainer of the Year and Acoustic Act of the Year and was nominated for four East Coast Music Association awards. “When people get involved, it really makes it a great night – for everyone.” Look forward to a great evening!
