The Festival of Small Halls and NAC Presents are happy to bring back the wildly popular Christmas with Matt Andersen. Join us for holiday favourites and even some surprises!

Recorded live off the floor in Nashville, Tennessee, celebrated songwriter Matt Andersen’s tenth album, Halfway Home by Morning, collects all the essential elements for a down-home ramble. Over its lucky 13 tracks, he explores every facet of his sound—sweat-soaked soul, incendiary rhythm and blues, heartbroken folk, and gritty Americana—in the Southern Ground studio, the same spot that legends like Neil Young, Emmylou Harris, and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded. The album is as honest and compromise free as anything he’s ever done.

The native New Brunswicker has proven time and time again, on stages everywhere from clubs to theatres, that he’s the genuine article. Andersen is a powerhouse performer with a giant, soul-filled voice and commanding stage presence, and has built a formidable following the old-fashioned way: touring worldwide and letting his stunned audiences and new devotees spread the good word of his righteous tunes all over.

The Festival of Small Halls and NAC Presents are thrilled to co-present Christmas with Matt Andersen.
