SAFFORD – The Kilted Man, Matthew Gurnsey, will bring his unique brand of Celtic music, tales and more to the Safford City-Graham County Library on Thursday from 6 – 7 p.m. for a free show that is appropriate for the entire family.
Matthew Gurnsey delights audiences with his rousing performances of traditional Irish and Scottish music. Through the marriage of wit and finesse, Gurnsey charms his audiences, sweeping them into tales of wayward voyages, unrequited love and the vibrantly colorful lives of the every-man beloved of many Irish tales.
His unique talents with traditional Celtic instruments such as the concertina, bodhran, bones, and mandolin, add an air of authenticity to each piece and his stirringly rich bass voice provides the foundation for the hauntingly beautiful melodies.
Gurnsey previously toured as a co-founder of the band “The Muses!” for nearly 10 years before tragedy broke up the band. Now Gurnsey is back out on the road on his national tour bringing his show to various venues.
If you are a fan of Celtic music, comedy, or just want to learn a thing or two, don’t miss The Kilted Man at the Safford City-Graham County Library on Thursday from 6 – 7 p.m.
