Purple Fiddle presents Man about a Horse

July 23, 2016 @ 8:30 pm

$10.00

With their blend of heartfelt originals, unique versions of popular tunes, and traditional bluegrass, Man About a Horse makes acoustic music that cuts across generational lines. And when you see them perform, you know they have a heck of a lot of fun doing it.

Philly’s favorite bluegrass band, Man About a Horse brandishes strong ties to the folk music tradition, with a progressive streak that informs their original songwriting.

Man About a Horse was formed in 2014 when two Philadelphia musicians chanced to discover a shared love of bluegrass over beers at a Northern Liberties watering hole. Matt Thomas (bass) and Roy Matthews (guitar and vocals) had played in several successful bands, but longed for the close harmonies and fast picking of bluegrass music.

The band’s roster now includes some of the Northeast’s best pickers, including banjoist Dan Whitener (also of well-known bluegrass/hip hop band Gangstagrass), Justin Stevenson (whose mandolin playing is a fixture in the New Jersey Pinelands bluegrass scene), and Elizabeth Cary, who has toured internationally behind her virtuoso fiddle playing.
