MATT & SHANNON HEATON
Updated and traditional Irish songs and tunes
With engaging stage presence and masterfully-crafted music, Boston-based Matt and Shannon Heaton offer well-travelled Irish music from the heart. The Heatons blend traditional tunes on flute, accordion, guitar, and bouzouki with sweet husband-and-wife harmony singing. It’s the duo that sounds like a band.
The Heatons are an integral part of Boston’s vibrant Irish music scene. (Shannon co-founded the Boston Celtic Music Fest in 2003 and was named 2016 Massachusetts Cultural Council Traditional Artist Fellow). In addition to his acclaimed work as an Irish accompanist, Matt has also received multiple Massachussetts Cultural Council Grants for his work with 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.
