Michael Matheny's "EL DORADO" Album Release & Tribute
Michael Matheny was a well-known figure in the Twin Cities Irish Music scene as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He's perhaps best known for his work with Gallowglass Irish Trio and his last band, The Long Straight Forever.

Michael was lost to us in 2012 at the age of 45 after a two-year struggle with cancer. He left behind grieving friends and family, but also a musical legacy. Before his death, he began work on his dream of creating a solo album, and in late 2015, Michael's family brought in musician/producer Scott Keever to complete the work of finishing Michael's album. The album, entitled "El Dorado", features the tracks that Michael recorded, with some additional performances by friends and former bandmates.

To celebrate the release of "El Dorado", we're going to bring in as many of the performers from the album as we can, including Raymond Yates, Lojo Russo, Ken Larson, Matt Ogden, Scott Keever and many others. It promises to be a night of tears, laughter and really great music.
