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 Newfoundland, largely learned from his grandmother around the table after dinner. In this video he shares his personal journey and his beautiful voice.
