About the artists:
Matt Wilson:
Singer songwriter Matt Wilson and his harp and banjo orchestra perform the best music from Matt’s deep repertoire, reaching back to his earliest compositions, and forward as well to the songs he’s chosen from his recent streak of songwriting luck. The group is also capable of spinning up unique and authoritative renditions of old time songs that Matt considers to be among the greatest of all music history. Each piece in their repertoire is presented on a feather bed of banjo rhythms, arpeggiating harp and reverberant swells of guitar.
Raised in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, Matt became a fan of rockers like Elvis Costello, Bruce Springsteen and Devo.

Matt and his brother joined forces with bass player John Munson to form Trip Shakespeare, writing, recording and touring together for a decade. Matt’s music has been featured on MTV, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, Spin, The Toronto Star and many other publications.

Trip Shakespeare’s single, “Toolmaster of Brainerd”, was named by City Pages one of Minnesota’s 50 Greatest Hits, and that group was included by nationally-influential radio station The Current in its 2017 list of 893 Most Essential Musical Artists of All Time.

The new group which Matt calls an “orchestra” has a grassy sound that’s easy to fall into. The sunshine tones of harp and banjo are rolled out on a wide road of electric bass provided by electric guitar ace Jacques Wait and ornamented by Matt’s acoustic guitar, piano and melodic harmonica stylings.
