Matt Meighan began performing in Chicago while still in high school in the 1960s and has since traveled the world with his music. He's played on the street corners of New York City, Melbourne, Australia, and Venice, Italy, and has regularly brought his songs to the pubs of Ireland over the past ten years.
Matt's songs range from the personal to the political and from humorous to serious. Along with his own songs Matt performs songs from the American folk and blues traditions as well as songs by other contemporary singer-songwriters.
Matt performs regularly in Portland and the Pacific Northwest. He is the host of the weekly Songwriter Roundup at Artichoke Music in Portland, where he also teaches songwriting classes.
