Matuto (Brazilian Bluegrass)

January Thaw Music Festival

Saturday, January 27 at 8pm
Sitnik Theatre of the Lackland Performing Arts Center

"The joyous, ebullient music of Matuto merges the folkloric music of Brazil with the sounds of all - American bluegrass" says the Chicago Tribune.  In Brazil, Matuto is slang for Country Boy, but these urbanized virtuosos have headlined renowned Bluegrass, Jazz, and World Music Festivals across North America, as well as recent collaborations with Carnegie Hall!
