Knoxville-based banjo and guitar songster, Matt A. Foster brings audiences Appalachian-tinged renditions of various songs and ballads in between country blues-fused originals. He is an entertainer for both the young and old.
His debut album, "Hills of Mexico", is like a porch visit with someone who makes you smile while lamenting the death of his friends. It’s four timeless American songs plaited with seven originals that nod to the tradition of dance tunes with serious subjects. Foster plays a fretless mountain banjo, harmonica, and the sole of his boot. It's live, simple, and earnest.
