Matt Meighan began performing in Chicago while still in high school in the 1960s and has since traveled the world with his music. He's played on the street corners of New York City, Melbourne, Australia, and Venice, Italy, and has regularly brought his songs to the pubs of Ireland over the past ten years.
In Boulder, Colorado Matt founded the Boulder Song Circle, co-founded and hosted the weekly Acoustic Brunch songwriter's showcase, and performed regularly along Colorado's front range. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon.
Meighan's musical heros include Woody Guthrie, Lightnin' Hopkins, Mississippi John Hurt, Townes Van Zandt, Lucinda Williams and Utah Phillips. His original songs range from the personal to the political and from humorous to downright bleak.
Boulder music favorite Danny Shafer (Danny Shafer & the Red Glory Ramblers) calls Matt, "One of the most honest voices in folk music."
