“Southeast Saskatchewan singer-songwriter Lorri Solomon Matthewson is taking her music to another level in 2013. First of all, she is traveling as a solo musician, something that is new for her. "Playing guitar has always been the difficult part of what I do", she laughs, "and nobody will ever mistake me for a great guitar player, but I've finally gotten to where I'm confident enough to carry a show on my own. My audience has been really good to me. " She plans on playing a lot. With a tour in the works for June and a commitment to support 10 Saskatchewan fund-raisers throughout the province in the next several months, Lorri plans to re-establish herself as a working musician. "Part of my strategy is to set aside a portion of my budget for advertising, for my music yes, but also for my sponsors, so that people know where the funds are going.”

“House concerts bring Solomon up-close-and-personal Lorri Solomon's music is raw. She writes about real people with real experiences. The Carlyle-based singer/songwriter takes the seemingly ordinary moments in our lives and turns them into something spectacular. ... Recording her first CD, "Behind the Eyes of a Dreamer" in 1998, Solomon is back with her sophomore release "Two Days in June." She ...is now ready to make her grand entrance back into the folk music scene. Solomon is gearing up to tour this fall, but in the meantime she's sharing her music with the locals. The accomplished musician loves the face-to-face interaction she gets at intimate shows which encouraged her to begin holding house concerts."I did one in Oxbow a little while ago," says Solomon, "I'm hosting one here soon, Hal Brolund is coming through on his way from Nova Scotia. They called him 'Manitoba Hal'”
