This is a nine-song recording of me performing songs by members of The Highwaymen. These songs aren't necessarily their most famous songs or their "greatest" songs. They are just a collection of songs that I love playing. The performances from the studio recording are very much inline with what the songs like when I'm performing them live.
A recent performance from the Ames Free Library in Easton, Massachusetts that was recorded by Easton Community Access Television.
Songs and Stories
I now have a website dedicated specifically to Songs and Stories. Please visit www.mattyorksongsandstories.com for the most up to date information. I'll be doing more than a hundred performances of it throughout Massachusetts (and beyond) in 2022.
Songs and Stories is music series that I've performing throughout New England since 2021. While all my life, I've performed my own original songs, I've also been a huge fan of music and been an avid reader and listener of so many of my musical heroes. Songs and Stories is a 60 or 90 minute performance that blends songs by the artists and stories about their upbringing and careers. For the summer/fall of 2021, I'll be focusing on the country supergroup The Highwaymen, which consisted of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson. I'll talk about the various collaborations those artists had with each other earlier in their careers, talk about the forming of The Highwaymen and perform a bunch of their most famous songs. If you'd be interested in booking me to perform, please call/text 781-953-6177 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
