Matt Anderson 1/24/2013
Time: 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Big Voice, big hair, big physique: the Maritime bluesman is a presence on stage. He''s even got big fingers...but those digits can sail over his acoustic guitar strings with the speed and grace of a hummingbird." - Ottawa Citizen

There''s a phenomenal buzz surrounding Matt Andersen. His raw talent and larger than life showmanship have been winning over audiences in Canada and around the world. His guitar style - a hybrid of sprawling blues, roots and rock - is amplified by an immensely powerful, sorrowing, and soulful voice to create a song that almost wraps around you physically. With his jaw-dropping talent, commanding presence, and passionate delivery, Matt enchants audiences from coast to coast, often to the point of eliciting spontaneous mid-set standing ovations. Hot on the heels of his unprecedented win at the 2010 International Blues challenge in Memphis TN (the first Canadian to do so since its 1984 inception), the accolades and awards continue to roll in: Entertainer of the Year and Acoustic Act of the Year at the 2011 Maple Blues Awards, as well as Blues Recording of the Year and Male Solo Recording of the Year at the 2011 East Coast Music Awards. Don’t miss this intimate evening of man, guitar, and the Arts on Tour stage.
