Excited to join up with Danny Barnes for a handful or Northwest shows from Sept 29-Oct 2. Dear Port Townsend, Eugene, Hood River and Portland, please take note. We have a live recording out (available here), the 12th release on Danny’s Minner Bucket Records. We’re also finishing up my first recording of solo songs, presented through the lens of Danny’s ‘BarDannyBarnes_MattSircely-1tnyard Electronics’. There are samples from both those records on the listen page. Danny’s always putting out records, so if you don’t have the new ones, go get ‘em!

Matt-Grisman's-octaveHad a great workshop in Stickerville at the Weiser Old-Time Fiddle Contest — thanks to everyone who came and made it such an inspiring experience. Looking forward to heading down to the Black Pot Camp in October as another highlight of the year.

I’ve been playing a lot of solo gigs featuring all original music, and have also embarked upon a nearly weekly engagement with my buddy Ari Joshua in Seattle. Working on a big batch of songs – check out a few on the ‘listen’ page, and watch for more to post very soon. Lots of writing and recording going on, along with some Hot Club Sandwich summer activity.
