Nova Scotia-based singer-songwriter Matt Andersen with his giant soul-filled voice and powerful blues performance will perform one night only on Friday, Sept. 28 at 7:30 p.m. at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.

Whitefish Theatre Company is thrilled to present the powerhouse performer with a commanding stage presence and a “big, comforting voice.” Andersen has built a formidable following the old-fashioned way — touring worldwide and letting the converted audiences and Andersen devotees spread his reputation through word of mouth. Growing up in a logging family of rural New Brunswick, known for its hard times and hard work, Andersen is known for his workingman’s blues with hues of folk, rock, country and gospel. Acoustic Music recently gave Andersen’s most recent album “Honest Man” rave reviews. In addition to headlining major festivals, clubs and theaters around the globe, his accolades continue to pile up including a JUNO nomination for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year, a CIMA Road Gold Award, and six Maple Blues Awards for Male Vocalist of the Year.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $20 for students with reserved seating. Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office, 1 Central Ave., Whitefish, or by calling 862-5371. Box office hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour before a performance. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.whitefishtheatreco.org. This show is sponsored by Steve Lull and Meg Wolfe. A free outreach concert at the Montana Veteran’s Home on Sept. 28 is sponsored by Bet and Doug Wise.
