Featured Musical Guest:
MATT ELWOOD performed at our launch and we’re thrilled to have him return! He is one of Canada’s most accomplished bluegrass musicians having fallen in love with the banjo and its unique flavours after years of musical training. He has toured with bluegrass bands and set the standard for this extraordinary musical genre here at home. His combination of the smoother sounds of the modern banjo with the raw energy of the first generation masters quickly caught the ear of many well respected Ontario bluegrass bands. Matt has played banjo, mandolin, and guitar in many of Toronto’s bluegrass bands including: The Unseen Strangers, The Sudden Valley Boys, Houndstooth, Crazy Strings, and the Hamstrung String Band.
