Matthew Sabatella at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park
Jan 27 –
This solo performance by Matthew Sabatella is part of the MacArthur Under Moonlight concert series. With vocals, guitar, banjo, and mountain dulcimer, Matthew Sabatella brings to life music that is woven into the fabric of the United States. For nearly two decades, he has followed the threads of traditional folk song, revealing a tapestry of music created by American colonists, pioneers, sailors, lumberjacks, immigrants, '49ers, farmers, mountaineers, slaves, soldiers, cowboys, railroaders, factory workers, and activists. In this solo performance, Matthew tells his own story of discovery while digging deep into his repertoire of folk, bluegrass, old-time country, fiddle tunes, Appalachian music, ragtime, blues, spirituals, railroad and cowboy songs, work songs, sea shanties, Old World ballads, and more. This is American heritage music.
