Matthew O'Donnell is an entertainer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and performer of traditional Celtic folk, American roots and popular music based in Richmond, VA. A long time musician and on-stage performer, Matthew has entertained thousands since beginning his act in 2014 and has established himself as one of Virginia's premier live entertainers.

Matthew specializes in singing spirited renditions of authentic folk music from around the world, as well as familiar pop, jazz, blues, rock'n'roll, country and doo-wop favorites, and lively instrumental tunes. He delights audiences with his humor, storytelling and multi-instrumentalism, incorporating accordion, banjo, guitar, ukulele and fiddle into a typical performance, but the centerpiece of a Matthew O'Donnell show is his passionate and powerful baritone voice, reminiscent of folk music legends like Luke Kelly and Stan Rogers, but versatile enough to feel right at home singing songs from Bing Crosby to Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash to John Legend, Elvis Presley to Ed Sheeran.

Matthew has substantial experience in such varied venues as street performing, bars/restaurants, festivals, private parties, weddings, senior communities and children's parties, drawing on his rapport with audiences of all ages and a repertoire of 200+ songs and 100+ instrumental tunes to tailor an enthralling show to any crowd and venue. He strives to fill the increasingly rare and much needed role of a highly-skilled tradesman in live entertaining, who offers everyone who hears him a unique, charming, creative, engaging and polished performance they will never forget.
