||The measure of a solo musician is simple: do audiences enjoy the show, and do they come back for more? When it comes to Ron Matthews, both answers are a definite yes.
With his 6- and 12- string acoustic guitars, light tenor vocals and friendly, casual style, Ron weaves a pleasant and satisfying musical experience for every listener each time he performs. His never-fail-to-please playlist of folk ballads, love songs, story songs and snappy, foot-tapping numbers insure that audiences always have a great time, leave with a smile -- and plan to come back for more!
Whether it's a program of his own original folk-flavored country songs, a family-friendly concert featuring a casual mix of Garth Brooks, Waylon Jennings, and Eagles tunes, or a full 2-hour tribute to the universally-loved music of John Denver, young and old alike find plenty to sing along with, smile and clap with, or just sit back, reminisce a little and enjoy.
Ron's commitment to John Denver's timeless songs is simple -- to keep the memory of the beloved singer/songwriter alive through the songs he wrote and played. Not an impersonator, Ron performs all of the classic favorites (and many lesser known songs) as Denver himself did, right down to the recognizable guitar intros that characterize John Denver's musical style.
Ron performs solo concerts in a wide variety of venues, from intimate home concerts in a living room full of friends to casual outdoor ‘Music in the Park’ shows to concert hall stages. Wherever you are, a magical evening of music is just an email or phone call away!
