Matt Heaton found the guitar after a disastrous start on the trumpet. For $35, he landed a Harmony Electric at a rummage sale in his neighborhood in Pittsburgh. Before landing in Irish traditional music circles, he played in rock bands, fronted a tango quartet, and turned pages and sang in the choir for his organist father. Irish music is home for Matt now, and has taken him around the globe with his wife Shannon, singer Karan Casey, the Boys of the Lough and many others. He also performs music for children and families, and has received multiple awards for his appealing “Toddlerbilly” stylings.
