Artfest Port Credit Music
Artfest events present performances by wonderful musicians to enhance the great atmosphere for visitors. We keep the music low-key so it doesn’t overpower the art scene, but engaging to make your time with us very enjoyable.
The show opens Friday at 4pm with Matt King performing guitar and vocals on a wide variety of popular tunes. Born into a musical family, Matt started playing guitar when he was 12 and has been playing professionally since the age of 14. He has performed and/or recorded with Scarefactory, Barney Rebel, Midnight Radio, The Funk King Band, Gonzo, Kevin MacLean, Astrid Young, and Harrison Kennedy (appearing on the Juno-nominated “Shame The Devil”). Friday 4pm - 9pm.
Join us Saturday from 12pm- 4pm with Andy Griffiths and his energetic and passionate rootsy folkin' rock tunes, who writes from gut feelings and personal experiences. He sings lead and plays a driving rhythmic/percussive style on acoustic guitar. Catchy melodies and tight vocal harmonies are prevalent throughout his tunes.
For the last 30 some odd years he's also been pursuing his love of music ... writing and recording original music whenever he was able to. Mostly original shows, feature sets, and open stages. Which led Andy to record and release his debut album Looking At Life in 2011. Along with help from many of the incredible musicians he met along the way. This album is a folky-rock album with an honest take on a life well lived. Reviewers have written that Andy's music brings comparison to Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, The Lowest of the Low, John Mellencamp, John Hiatt, Grapes of Wrath amongst others. Other album releases are Mind on Other Things and Stella Started It! www.andygriffiths.ca
Love local music? Then join us from 4:30-8:30pm for the InBetwe3n Band. They play 60s and 70s classic rock as well newer alternative rock. Scott and Bryan Gauer & the INBETWE3N describe their style and genre as “Western Psychedelic”. Opening your heart and expanding your mind, they get you moving and singing along with simple songs that penetrate your body and soul. A musical amalgamation of folk, rock, country, psychedelic, and soul music; heavily influenced by artists established in the late 1960’s.
