Join Crys Matthews in celebration of Juneteenth!

The City of Keene, in partnership with Monadnock International Film Festival, is hosting a special concert featuring Crys Matthews on Friday, June 14th, at Brewbakers in Keene, NH.

Doors open at 6:30 pm, concert starts at 7:00 pm. $15 cover.

Already hailed as “the next Woody Guthrie,” Crys is among the brightest stars of the new generation of social justice music-makers. A former drum major and classically trained clarinetist turned folk singer, Matthews uses her voice to answer Dr. Martin Luther King’s call to be “a drum major for justice.”

A powerful lyricist whose songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience as what she lightheartedly calls “the poster child for intersectionality,” Justin Hiltner of Bluegrass Situation called Matthews’s gift “a reminder of what beauty can occur when we bridge those divides.” She is made for these times, and with the release of her new, hope-fueled, love-filled social justice album Changemakers, Matthews hopes to take her place alongside some of her heroes in the world of social justice music, like Sweet Honey in the Rock and Holly Near.

“I believe in hope,” Matthews said. “As a social-justice songwriter, it is my duty to keep breathing that hope and encouragement into the people who listen to my music.”

Crys Matthews’s thoughtful, realistic, and emotional songs speak to the voice of our generation and remind us why music indeed soothes the soul.
