This newest collection of traditional material from the Newfoundland singer-songwriter explores a unique repertoire of songs from both sides of the Atlantic and continues Byrne’s journey through his rich musical lineage. A guest appearance by his dad (Joe Byrne) makes for a particularly special moment on this recording.
Another highlight is an original ballad by Byrne called “Adelaide”, penned after discovering a fascinating family connection to a beautiful love story - “a traditional song just waiting to be written,” as he describes it.
"This will be one special show," says owner Pat Deighan.
"Matthew is one of the East Coast’s rising stars and we are all very excited to have him play the Trailside."
