Matthew Gordon & Silvershade Scenery

Ticket Price: $15.50 ADVANCE | $20.50 DAY OF SHOW


Matthew Gordon & Silvershade Scenery know that the combination of words and music has been the highest form of communication since ancient times, from Homer through ancient religious hymns to Dylan and beyond. Whether drawing inspiration from the funk of Sly Stone or the bluegrass of the Stanley Brothers, Matthew assembles the elements in his original songs to make his subtle poetical points with maximum connection from his heart to each individual audience member’s heart.

His award-winning songwriting (Extreme Folk Society [XFS] Song of the Year, Every Cent Concert’s songwriting contest prize-winner) and sensitive yet funky dobro playing have brought him in great demand with multiple Philadelphia bands. He and the band, featuring Zeek Mitchell on keyboards, Lee Vuotto on bass, and Brian Flanagan on drums, have appeared at The Philadelphia Folk Festival, as well as many other outdoor concert events, bars, and listening rooms with a heart in folk-grass and a soul in funk-rock. Matthew Gordon & Silvershade Scenery bring an original, creative and intimate spirit that will alternately move you to smile, think deeply, dance, and/or nod your head in recognition of an exposed feeling or vivid mental image.
