Matt Meighan "For the Sake of the Song" w/guest Anna Hoone

For this monthly series, songwriter Matt Meighan invites members of the Portland area's diverse songwriting community to join him in presenting their most "truth-telling" songs. With a different guest or two each month, this is a great opportunity to hear new songs by some of the Northwest's most talented up-and-coming songwriters.

A song collector as well as a songwriter, Matt Meighan has been called "one of the most honest voices in folk music." He teaches the popular "Songwriting as Truth-telling" classes and hosts a weekly "Songwriter Roundup" show at Artichoke Music in Portland. His own songs are at turns poignant, funny, pointed, personal and political. His fingerstyle guitar and warm, engaging stage presence have made him a popular Portland-area performer.

"Matt Meighan is a magnet for good music. He delivers unusually well-written songs with poise, experience, and warmth that brings his music to the forefront of the Northwest acoustic music scene" - Mike Meyer KMHD-fm
