Blues, Blues Rock
Cape Breton, NS
With one foot steeped in the musical roots of blues and country, and the other knee-deep in rock, Matt Minglewood Band’s constant touring and high octane live shows have earned them the well-deserved reputation of ‘down-to-earth bearers of good will and good times.’ Masters of improvisation and genre bending, their diversity and broad audience appeal have made them a true favorite on the Canadian touring circuit. In a climate ripe with ever-changing musical styles, Matt’s artistic character has been defined by remaining true to himself. He’s done just that on over a dozen recordings ripe with engaging, original material and appearances by Jeff Healy, Colin James, Charlie Musselwhite and many more. Throughout his five decades, Minglewood has been honored with numerous accolades and awards including three Gold albums and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Maple Blues Society. The last two decades in particular have seen Minglewood embraced as one of Harvest’s all time favorites.
