Listen to fiddler Matt Brown play a panoply of his favorite fiddle tunes in the intimate setting of Seman Violins’ recital hall. Matt Brown teaches fiddle, banjo, and guitar at the Old Town School of Folk Music. His fiddling is featured along with guitarist Greg Reish on the 2015 release “Speed of the Plow,” which was engineered and co-produced by GRAMMY winner Dave Sinko (Punch Brothers, Béla Fleck, Hot Rize). Matt has also toured as a soloist, with percussive dance ensembles Rhythm in Shoes and Footworks, and has made guest appearances with Tim O’Brien, The John Hartford Stringband, Uncle Earl, Special Consensus, and Della Mae. He has performed twice with Mike Snider on the Grand Ole Opry. Matt plays fiddle with Chicago band Big Sadie. Big Sadie was recently voted Best Country Band in this year’s Chicago Reader Best of Chicago reader’s poll. Their debut album, “Keep Me Waiting,” came out in May on Spindle Tree Records.
