April 2023 Update


If you are looking for Songs & Stories - The Highwaymen/Johnny Cash info/dates, please head over to www.mattyorksongandstories.com. Thanks!

Hi folks,

I made a three minute video that talks about some of April's upcoming highlights that you can watch if you'd like, just click on the video below. You'll notice almost everything this month is Songs and Stories stuff, not much original stuff, but that'll be changing in the months ahead. 

This past Saturday, I was featured on Ocean State Sessions on Rhode Island's PBS affiliate. It includes an interview and three songs (including two new songs that I've yet to record in the studio), you can watch it at this link. The show was taped last summer at the beautiful Narrows Center in Fall River, MA, one of the best sounding rooms I've ever performed in.

A bunch of gigs coming up. A few highlights:

April 21st (Friday) - City Winery Nashville. This is an early show (7:30) at a great venue for only $15. It's a big opportunity for me, so if you live down in that area or know folks that will be down there that week, please let them know. I'm excited to perform there, but am also hoping I'm not the only one there : ) Advance tickets and more info can be found at this link. 

April 29th (Saturday) - Newport Playhouse, Newport, Rhode Island. It's Willie Nelson's 90th birthday and I'll be celebrating by doing songs and stories solely focused on Willie, at a great listening room in beautiful Newport, R.I. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.newportplayhouse.com/
