Matt Watroba: Song--Story--Inspiration!
Thanks to Folk Alliance International for inducting me into the Folk D.J. Hall Of Fame. The award show will be part of the February conference in Montreal, CA.
Matt Watroba is first and foremost a community singer. He has the knack for picking the perfect songs and stories for the audience in front of him. In concert, at a festival, in a library, in a school, or in the park, you can count on a performance that will get you singing, make you laugh, and leave you feeling a little bit better about the world we live in. Matt also works with award winning performer Rev. Robert Jones, presenting educational programs that celebrate diversity through the roots and branches of American folk music.
"Matt Watroba is one of those singers songwriters live for. He has terrific taste in music. possesses an outstanding voice and the ability to not only perform beautifully, but to teach audiences the songs as he sings them."
“You were wonderful! Your music and messages were just what our students needed to hear. You clearly know how to work with and relate to young people.”
--Kathleen Kryza--Huron Valley Schools
"Matt is a perceptive and able teacher as well as a warm, supportive person. He showed us the how of community singing and the doing of it. Matt was adept at picking out teaching moments without any kind of judgement applied."
--Unsolicited comment from a student at the Swannanoa Gathering
