"A member of the Newfoundland band The Dardanelles, Matthew Byrne’s voice evokes strong emotional connections for those who hear it, such as his contemporary, Great Big Sea's Alan Doyle: "Matt's interpretation of traditional song is somehow fresh and ancient at the same time. And his voice is friggin' perfect."  That sentiment led to a 2018 Traditional Recording of the Year at the Canadian Music awards. A singer, storyteller, and guitarist, Matthew's upbringing with parents who were both singers and song collectors steered him easily into the field he is in today, wherein he is reaping such deserved accolades, as much for his inherited unique repertoire as well as a fascination for unearthing and reinterpreting traditional songs. Tony Montague of fRoots Magazine states: "Byrne is the finest interpreter of traditional songs not only in his native province, but all of Canada.” Matthew’s first virtual concert with SFS on May 15th, 7pm, and live chat with audience afterwards, promises a beautiful and unforgettable evening!"
