Matthew Hartz

...has won “The Big Three," being the Grand National Fiddle Championships held each year in Weiser, Idaho, the Grand Master Fiddle Championships held in Nashville, Tennessee and the World Championships of Fiddling held in Crockett, Texas. Being crowned champion at any one of these prestigious contests holds high regard in the world of old-time fiddling. Matthew then went on to win the Grand Master Fiddle Championships twice more (1993, 1995) and the Grand National Fiddle Championships again in 1992.

The Beach Boys, Paul Simon, Flatt & SCruggs, and Bob Wills, among others, have all influenced Matthew’s music.

Matthew is proud to announce the release of his second studio album of original music entitled,   “A Steady Sense of Feel. "
