MATT & SHANNON HEATON – A Take It Outside Concert!
Or call in your reservations for our May 15, 4:00-5:00 p.m. concert with Matt & Shannon Heaton to 401-725-9272. This will be the first of five OUTDOOR CONCERTS held on Sundays behind the theatre building!
With engaging stage presence and masterfully-crafted music, Boston-based Matt and Shannon Heaton offer well-travelled Irish music from the heart. Steeped in sessions in County Clare and brewed in the acoustic music scenes of Chicago and Boston, their flute/guitar/bouzouki instrumentals and sweet husband-and-wife harmony singing draw deeply from the Irish tradition. The Heatons are an integral part of Boston’s vibrant trad music scene. Shannon co-founded Boston’s Celtic music fest and was named Massachusetts Traditional Artist Fellow in 2016. Matt has performed with countless traditional music bands and has received multiple MCC grants and awards for his music for kids. Matt and Shannon are comfortable onstage and have a warm connection with their audiences. They are world class American performers with Irish roots and universal appeal. “Their playing is masterful and inventive, their arrangements city-smart and spacious. Still, they never forget that Irish music is, at its heart, a neighborly form, meant for sharing, not showing off." —The Boston Globe
