Matt Moskal plays a fresh form of Manitoban folk. The Ontario-born troubadour mixes tried-and-true finger plucking and evocative storytelling with lively yet smoky vocal melodies. He delivers confused and compassionate truths with tact. Brutal honesty feels so sweet when it’s cushioned between soft, sentimental acoustic tones. Suited for coffee time after Sunday family meals, a waning August afternoon or those late night moments after your worst breakup.
Matt Moskal has played alongside the likes of Julie Doiron, Wax Mannequin, Spookey Ruben and Fred Penner. In 2010, he played the main stage of the 40th annual Northern Lights Festival Boreal. The festival also featured headliners Broken Social Scene and The Weakerthans. In 2014, he spearheaded Folk & Word at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg, MB, combining slam poetry with folk music. In 2017, he curated, hosted and performed at Don’t Be Scared: A Tribute to Daniel Johnston at the Good Will Social Club in Winnipeg. The event was a fundraiser for the Canadian Mental Health Association.
