Here is a clip from a performance July 23, 2011 at Palace Theater. Matt + Mel playing with John Johnson on guitar, Landon Amonett on bass.
We are excited to announce Matt will begin playing with up and coming bluegrass group, WestWend.
Since 2011, WestWend has been captivating the hearts of country fans. Husband- and-wife duo, Jonathan Maness and Wendy Crowe make bluegrass and country music collide creating their own unique take on country music and bringing it back to it’s roots.
The combination of this duo is unlike any other in country music today. Their chemistry together ignites their whole performance from live musical shows, to the recording studio. Wendy is a sweet, soulful singer with a honeyed alto voice and a smile that lights up the stage, as well as a naturally prolific lyricist. Jonathan’s rich baritone and agile flatpicking are well-known to audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, he’s also an expert arranger and producer. The combination of both Wendy and Jonathan’s talents brings instrumental chops to a quickly growing catalog of original material. Their Close duet harmony brings the songs home to the listener, while instrumental support of a strong calibre of musicians round out an exciting show package.
