The Halifax Urban Folk Festival‘s 10th anniversary is thrilled to present Matthew Sweet and the Halifax All Stars, including an opening songwriters’ circle featuring Damhnait Doyle, Alejandro Escovedo and Christina Martin at The Carleton on Sunday, September 1st. Live music starts at 8 PM and tickets are available HERE!
If Matthew Sweet never existed, it’s doubtful that the indie rock scene in Halifax would have evolved as it did. His Girlfriend album has been cited by numerous bands – Sloan, Cool Blue Halo, Matt Mays – as a pivotal influence in their development and we are absolutely thrilled that Matthew is playing HUFF for his debut shows in Atlantic Canada. Matt Mays and Cool Blue Halo’s Paul Boudreau will be members of Matthew’s All Star band.
The opening songwriters’ circle on the night will be comprised of Damhnait Doyle, Alejandro Escovedo and Christina Martin.
