Winter Island Tour with Matthew Byrne and Sherman Downey at 

The Twillingate Performing Arts Centre

For the first time at the Twillingate Performing Arts Centre (formerly known as the Northeast Church Heritage Museum), comes Matthew Byrne and Sherman Downey on their fourth annual Winter Island Tour across Newfoundland. Matthew Byrne and Sherman Downey combine two of Newfoundland’s finest voices and songwriters for a most memorable, enjoyable evening.

Matthew Byrne was born into a family of Newfoundland music makers and his repertoire is heavily influenced by his unique musical lineage. This tradition thrives on the song – the weaving of a great story with a beautiful melody – and Matthew’s music reminds us how satisfying traditional songs can be when stripped down to these basic elements. His live performance offers tasteful and honest interpretations of folk songs delivered with polished guitar work and powerful vocals. His repertoire transcends time and place with traditional songs from both sides of the Atlantic.

Sherman Downey’s music embraces Folk-Roots and Country while at the same time flirting with Indie Pop; giving him broad appeal to an ever growing audience. His highly anticipated second release ‘The Sun in your Eyes’ brought home Newfoundland & Labrador’s ‘Pop/Rock Recording’ award as well as a nod from SOCAN with the province’s ‘SOCAN Songwriter of the Year’ distinction.

Both are masterful storytellers with a dynamic stage chemistry and a live show that demonstrates how traditional and modern worlds of folk music can merge seamlessly.
