Matthew Byrne in Concert: An Evening of Traditional Newfoundland Music

New Bedford, MA – The New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center and the Community Economic Development Center are pleased to announce the next concert in their performance series.  Matthew Byrne in Concert: An Evening of Traditional Newfoundland Music will take place on Monday, May 8th at 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Born into a family of Newfoundland music makers, Byrne’s 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 his 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.

Tickets are $12/members; $15/non-members and are on sale now at the Center or on line at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2917300.  The Center is located at 38 Bethel Street and is handicap accessible with free off-street parking. The performance series is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
