Here’s a video of Matt and Stephanie Fogg performing their original lullabye at Carnegie Hall in New York City!
I am so proud to say that one of the lullabies that Stephanie Fogg and I wrote and performed will be featured and performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City! This is very exciting for me as a musician, composer, and parent.
Here is some more information about the lullaby project…
The Lullaby Project, part of Carnegie Hall’s Musical Connections program, creates musical experiences for women facing pregnancy in their teenage years or while homeless or incarcerated. The project invites participants to work with professional artists to write a personal lullaby for their babies, strengthening the bond between parent and child. Now extending across the country, the Lullaby Project enables partner organizations to support families in their own communities.
Matt was privileged to play in the University of Maine August Faculty Ensemble this year, and we have the videos to prove it! Along with Matt were Michael Dease, Tim Weir, Steve Grover, Greg Loughman, and David Wells.
Matt will be continuing his busy schedule throughout Winter 2012, playing at several great venues in November and December. To find out more, go to the shows page.
In addition to his own schedule, Matt continues to spend lots of time working with students at the Midcoast School Of Music in both Bath and Portland, Maine. At the moment, he is involved with several of the ensembles that are practicing for an upcoming showcase on November 12th at The Stockhouse Restaurant in Westbrook, Maine. If you or someone you know is interested in either music lessons or playing with great musicians, this is a good way to see what MSOM is all about.

Matt is very excited to be adding new shows throughout Fall and Winter 2012. Over the next few months, he can be found at Nonantum Resort (Kennebunkport, Maine), Azure Cafe (Freeport, Maine), and Mombo Restaurant (Portsmouth, New Hampshire).
Also, you’ll be able to find Matt at various showcase performances by ensembles from Midcoast School Of Music as their students venture out at venues in Maine.
Matt’s calendar has been updated through the end of Summer 2012 – head on over to the shows page for more information. Most Thursdays and Fridays, you’ll be able to catch Matt at Freeport’s Cafe Azure from 6 pm until 9 pm. Most Saturdays, Matt will be in Portsmouth, NH at Mombo on Marcy Street from 7 pm until 10 pm. Stop by and say hello!
As always, dates and venues are subject to change with little to no notice. In spite of his efforts to keep everyone updated, you may want to call the venue with any questions prior to heading out if there’s any doubts. Thanks!

In 2010, Matt returned to the Azure Cafe in Freeport, Maine – the site of his live album in 2006. With a group of superb musicians in tow, it was yet another night for great music. Photos by Ross Elliot.
