Event

Peaceful Sorrow and Matt Meighan
Adam Yust's emotionally honest songs are soulful and sweet. The emotional honesty is complemented by Ping Chen's classical temperament on Viola and Indigo Hall's improvisational impulses on Cello. Together the group is creating a new Folk idiom within the old Folk paradigm. That's what it is about for this emerging group--accepting the reality in which you exist and expressing something beautiful and honest. Your life may not always be filled with joy. And the joy you experience is sometimes overcome by sorrow. But there is always peace to be found in the experience.

"Though the way ahead never did get clear, I guess we made it after all" sings Portland songwriter Matt Meighan, and the experience of miles traveled is easy to hear in his music. Drawing on his years as an activist, journalist, parent and poet, Matt writes tradition-steeped, thought-provoking songs that are at turns personal, political, poignant and funny.

Matt mixes his originals with songs by fellow songwriters and older songs from the folk and blues traditions. His commitments to good writing and "truth-telling" are clear in the songs he chooses and the songs he writes, many of which are performed by other songwriters. Matt is a popular performer and an ardent supporter of the Portland-area acoustic music community.
