Matt’s down-to-earth presence and style of communicating is an audience favorite…

Pennsylvania Firefly Festival - Tionesta PA 
By Peggy Butler 

The Annual Pennsylvania Firefly Festival has had the privilege and benefit of Matt's talent and generosity for 6 years. He consistently delivers an entertaining and engaging show. He uses his musical talents to revive the old standard folk/rock covers, and yet his originals seem like old favorites.

Matt is an engaging performer who is great with an audience. Conversant about his songs and their inspiration, he is a master storyteller and his set holds your attention. Speaking as a venue owner, Matt is a pleasure to work with. He is prompt, polite and professional. It is apparent that he cares about his craft and has put in the time to hone his considerable skills. I highly recommend him for whatever event you are considering a singer/songwriter for.

Matt Miskie is a natural. He plays with a keen self-awareness revealed through both his music and his general demeanor: he is sensitive to the environment in which he plays; this speaks to honest musicianship. Matt is kind, receptive, and gentle with his music and with people. I hope to hear him again!
