David Morrison reviews The Fretless, “Live from the Artfarm” on FRUK

It is always satisfying when a writer not only understands the record and can use their skills to describe it, but takes the reader further by sharing their experience with the music.  A delightful read.

The album was released earlier this month and has already garnered attention from fans new and old. Expect to hear some tunes from this album along with that of their previous albums at their shows in 2018.

Up close and personal with Matthew Byrne, produced by the CBC

Matthew is a song interpreter, not a swinger-songbiter. Not one to write songs in the key of me, he trolls the tradition for songs that have stood the test of generations. Much of his repertoire are songs that have migrated from the old country to Nova Scotia, largely learned from his grandmother around the table after dinner. In this video he shares his personal journey and his beautiful voice.
