Matt & Shannon Heaton blend Irish traditional music with original songwriting. An unusual blend of material? Sure. But a natural one for this Boston-based husband-and-wife pair, who have played in Irish sessions for years, while becoming involved in Boston's rich songwriting scene. Matt's inventive guitar and bouzouki playing provides a rich framework for Shannon's timeless, evocative lyrics and her stunning Irish flute playing. Their masterfully-arranged songs move seamlessly from full harmony singing, to driving wood flute riffs, to lush guitar lines, creating a big, layered, modern sound.
