"McCully and Biggs to appear at Courthouse Friday"

The second stop on a musical tour of
Townships’ heritage landmarks for
singer-songwriter Matthew McCully
will be Knowlton’s Old Courthouse, an
imposing neo-classical structure built in
1858-1859 that originally contained the
courthouse and the registry office of
Brome County. The red brick building on
St. Paul Road now houses the extensive
archives of the Brome County Historical
Society and will be centre stage for the
musicians this Friday evening.
“I worked as a tour guide at the
Brome County Historical Society for two
summers as a student, so I’m really excited
to be making this one of the stops
on the tour,” McCully said.
McCully will be joined on stage by
Sarah Biggs this Friday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m.
Biggs, who recently released her third
album, Surface Tension, is well-known
on the music circuit and a local
favourite. The two solo musicians have
shared the stage before and complement
each other with a rich repertoire of original
McCully’s heritage tour, which begins
Oct. 4 at the Piggery Theatre in North
Hatley with guest singer Kate Morrison,
was designed to spotlight the arts community
in rural Quebec and to draw attention
to the area’s rich network of
cultural institutions.
“My idea was to use these wonderful
heritage buildings as venues for all types
of artistic expression,” McCully said.
“They are intimate spaces that carry
with them a lot of history and character
to enhance the experience.”
The tour is made possible through the
support of ELAN and the Department of
Canadian Heritage, and McCully is hoping
to use the blueprint to showcase heritage
institutions throughout rural
Quebec. The first leg of the tour took
place in September in the Gaspe.
The Knowlton show begins Friday
evening at 8 p.m. at the Old Courthouse
on St. Paul Road, at the corner of Lakeside,
and admission is by donation. Seating
is limited but McCully is hoping a
large number of people will show up to
support the concept of the tour and the
museum and to also enjoy an evening of
great music in an intimate environment.

Matthew McCully and the Matter of Principle (album)

King to a Sparrow (Single)



Singer songwriter Matthew McCully studied music at Bishop's University in Lennoxville, before moving to Vancouver to complete his first album, Matthew McCully and the Matter of Principle. His sound is warm and inviting, hovering between the traditional and alt folk genre, with lyric-driven songs compared to Paul Simon and fellow Canadian Ron Sexsmith.
In concert, McCully's music really comes alive, as he captivates his audience with evocative lyrics, and warms the room with amusing anecdotes about the inspiration behind his songs..

McCully’s recent tour of non-traditional venues captured widespread media attention as it highlighted the capacity of heritage buildings, libraries and churches to become performance spaces for artists seeking to engage audiences in intimate concerts. At each venue, McCully shared the stage with a local artist.

Whether playing for 25 at a local historical society or for an audience of 500 at Centennial Theatre where he opened for Ashley MacIsaac, McCully’s easy rapport with every audience and the versatility of his songs and instrumentation make him an instant hit.

He is currently working on a new album, while continuing to respond to performance requests and plan a summer tour ...
