Valentine’s LOVE (the) MUSIC with Matthew Byrne & Sherman Downey
There comes a time when a person has a change of heart. This Valentine’s Day weekend is our time to do just that. Fogo Island Inn has its arrow aimed on a special musical weekend for Valentines of all ages.
Fogo Island Inn welcomes Sherman Downey and Matthew Byrne, masterful singers, songwriters and storytellers hailing from Newfoundland. This one night engagement features the coming together of their our respective folk music styles and repertoires. Both have acclaimed solo careers and the Love(the Music) show on fogo Island is a once-a-year chance to see them as a duo.
Sherman’s imaginative and tenderly crafted songs are the backdrop for an exceptional 2-night stay at the edge of the Earth. Sherman’s highly anticipated second album, ‘The Sun in Your Eyes’ garnered accolades including Newfoundland and Labrador's 'SOCAN Songwriter of the Year' distinction. Matthew Byrne burst on to the trad music scene in 2010 with his debut recording, Ballads, Matthew has swiftly earned his place as one of the East Coast’s most authentic and vital traditional voices. His role as singer and song-finder in The Dardanelles has brought him to many major international festival stages. This dynamic duo comes to Fogo Island as part of their 2017 Winter Island Tour.
