Matthew Hornell and Andrew Sneddon take you on an exploration of the music they love; timeless traditional ballads, Old Time tunes, Bluegrass, evocative original songs, and exciting instrumentals. Hornell provides the lead vocals and a driving rhythm guitar; Sneddon offers up a silvery counterpoint with his Dobro guitar and smooth tenor harmony that blends perfectly with Matthew’s rich melodious baritone and lead vocals.
Hornell and Sneddon create a very personal show, with off the cuff humor and interesting stories they have gathered from years of touring and performing together. After seeing just one show you will leave with a true understanding of these performers both as people and musicians. Matthew was born and bred in Newfoundland, where the directness and charm of centuries of storytelling, isn’t just an art form, it’s a lens through which the world is viewed. Andrew, raised in the fertile farm country of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley, brings a rural musical feel and keen melodic sense to his Resophonic guitar playing. Whether accompanying a song or leading the way through traditional fiddle tunes and original instrumentals his playing is exciting and evocative. Hornell & Sneddon create an intimate and exciting experience. This is a show not to be missed.
They will be releasing a new album in the fall of 2017.
