Pipes, Whistles, Banjo
was born in Cape Breton and started playing whistle and
pipes when he was 10, having been lucky enough to be
surrounded by a strong tradition of piping in his family.
At 18 he won the Argyllshire
Gathering Silver Medal in Oban, Scotland, and at 19 started
recording, playing and touring the US with Cuillin - a
celtic rock / fusion group.
At 21, after the group went
their separate ways, Matt joined Natalie MacMaster's band
and played with her for the better part of 8 years, on
pipes, whistles, banjo, percussion and guitar. He appears on
several of her recordings including Blueprint, Yours Truly
and Cape Breton Girl.
When he was 25 he recorded and
released the critically acclaimed "Piping Album", a
stripped-bare solo recording of his main instrument. In 2009
Matt joined the Canadian Forces as a musician, and will
complete his contract in Spring 2013, when he will again
rejoin Natalie's band.
He currently lives in Toronto,
Ontario with his lovely wife Kate.
