Matt Brown & Vidar Skrede team up to play traditional American and Nordic fiddle music.

Matt Brown teaches fiddle, banjo, and guitar at the Old Town School of Folk Music. His fiddling is featured along with guitarist Greg Reish on the 2015 release “Speed of the Plow,” which was engineered and co-produced by GRAMMY winner Dave Sinko (Punch Brothers, Béla Fleck, Chris Thile & Edgar Meyer). Matt and Greg have been touring the country as a duo performing the album's collection of old-time duets. Matt has also toured as a soloist, with percussive dance ensembles Rhythm in Shoes and Footworks, and has made guest appearances with Tim O'Brien, The John Hartford Stringband, Uncle Earl, Special Consensus, and Della Mae. He has performed twice with Mike Snider on the Grand Ole Opry. Matt plays fiddle with the Chicago band Big Sadie, whose debut album will be released in 2017.
