      We moved from the Boston area last year and loved getting a chance to see Matt play some old favorites! It was much longer than the last snow day concert we saw too!

      Great idea! Lots of fun. My son enjoyed it. He keeps asking to see it again, now he thinks Matt lives in my computer 😂

      Go Stop Go! Go Stop Go! Go Stop Go! And the whole gig was really great. Thank you for the special snow day time.

      What was your favorite part of the performance? The music was great but there were numerous technical problems. At first the sound was out of sinc with the video and kept blanking out. When I rebooted it was fine for about 10" until the screen froze and I was unable to start it again.

Matt & Shannon Heaton: Updated and traditional ballads with Irish roots and multi-instrumental virtuosity
With engaging stage-presence, masterfully-crafted songs, [and sweet husband-and-wife harmony singing], Boston-based Matt & Shannon Heaton offer well-travelled music from the heart.

Steeped in sessions in County Clare, brewed in the acoustic music scenes of Chicago & Boston, and spiced with imaginative original compositions, the Heatons' sound is an accessible amalgam of trad roots and imaginative modern acoustic sounds, brimming with husband-and-wife harmonies and highly textured guitar.

The Heatons move audiences from uplifting to heartbreaking songs, with heart-soaring instrumental work and charm. Shannon (Live Ireland's Female Musician of the Year 2010 & 2011) has been compared to Alison Krauss and Altan's Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh for her combination of vocal grace and instrumental prowess on the Irish flute and button accordion. Matt provides a firm foundation on the guitar & bouzouki which is equal parts Richard Thompson, Donal Lunny and Bill Frisell, always searching for the perfect chord. Their music is Irish-American in its roots and universal in its appeal.
