Matt and Shannon Heaton

Celebrate the holidays with Matt & Shannon Heaton's "Fine Winter's Night," featuring original and traditional Irish music to brighten chilly winter days and warm long winter nights. With secular and sacred carols, 'FWN' is simultaneously homegrown, refined and timeless.
----

"Fine Winter's Night" is not your run-of-the-mill Christmas show. Matt and Shannon present a banquet of songs dating from the 12th to the 21st century with husband-and-wife harmonies and instrumental accompaniment on guitar, bouzouki, Irish flute: simultaneously homegrown, refined and timeless.

The music ranges across a spectrum of moods and emotions, much like the holiday season itself. There's a mix of poignancy, jubilance and reflection with songs about Victorian winter romance, the nativity and the introspective nature of the solstice, sprinkled with beautiful airs and upbeat jigs and reels. The Heaton originals sound like timeless traditional classics, and their renditions of centuries-old Irish ballads often have inventive modern twists that resonate with listeners.

The Heatons are no strangers to high-profile Christmas programs. Matt has played with the Boys of the Lough for their Christmas tour, while Shannon has appeared with the "Celtic Christmas Sojourn" production at the Cutler Majestic Theater, and and figures prominently on the "Celtic Christmas Sojourn" DVD released by Rounder Records. They also recorded an album of traditional and original carols with critically acclaimed trad band Siucra ("A Very Siucra Christmas").

"Fine Winter's Night" offers one more reason to look forward to December. The Boston Irish Reporter summed it: "Bringing us songs both sacred and reverent, Shannon's voice is fresh and subtle like the first dusting of snow, while Matt's light and sure guitar accompaniment sets the pace for a joyful sleighride...[They] lead us beyond familiar old songs but they don't forsake them, eitherThis album will make you happy. Get those cookies into the oven and invite your loved ones to tea; Matt and Shannon have made music that reminds us of what the holidays are for."
