Matty Metcalfe is a world-class accordionist, composer, arranger, and multi-faceted musician. His previous albums have focused on New Orleans piano music, modern reinventions of gypsy jazz pieces, and a host of eclectic original songs. He has composed soundtracks for two feature length movies and many theater productions. Currently Mr. Metcalfe is finishing his most recent album. Entitled 'Fleet of Fingers' and set for release at the end of 2011-- it features all original compositions. Playing almost every instrument on the album, from banjo to whistles, accordion to Celtic harp, Mr. Metcalfe hops between genres, artfully creating his own sound that lies somewhere between modern and traditional folk music from around the globe. Artfully arranged, surprisingly crafted, and ever-entrancing, Matty Metcalfe's melodious musings will inspire and delight discerning and casual listeners alike! Mr. Metcalfe will be performing LIVE exotic Gypsy and Slavic music with special guests at the Balkan Bistro @ 1003 West Main St. from 7:30 - 9:30 every Thursday this year except Oct 20 and Nov 24.
