Woods Hole Folk Music Society Presents “Matt & Shannon Heaton”
January 3, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$15
THE WOODS HOLE FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY (WHFMS): JANUARY 3
Presents “Matt and Shannon Heaton” on Sunday, January 3. We are excited to announce the return of a husband and wife team that plays a pivotal part in today’s thriving Boston Irish music scene. They first met in Chicago in 1991 and built their act through years of touring together, first with band Siucra and then as a duo. Matt and Shannon have grown into thoroughly entertaining performers, offering a depth of shared experience and a love for Irish music that matches their considerable talents as well as their relaxed and humorous onstage banter. Shannon plays traditional Irish flute, pennywhistle and accordion, while Matt, a highly sought-after accompanist and studio musician, supports the melody with driving guitar and bouzouki. They also sing, both possessing naturally pure-sounding voices. Varied influences from classical music to the traditions of Africa and Asia add further depth to their playing, coalescing in a shared style that is both true to tradition and, as Scott Alarik said, “city-smart and spacious.” The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is $15, with discounts for members, seniors, youth, and children. The Community Hall is handicapped accessible. There is no charge for street parking after 6:00 p.m. More information is available by calling (508) 540-0320 or at www.arts-cape.com/whfolkmusic.
