Hailing from Portland, Oregon, prolific singer-songwriter and guitarist M.Ward will head to Canberra this February to celebrate 20 years since the release of his critically acclaimed album Transfiguration of Vincent.
Released in 2003, Transfiguration of Vincent was Matthew Ward aka M.Ward’s third album – an infusion of folk and blues, dripping with deft guitar picking and bar room piano.
Inspired by John Fahey’s 1965 album The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death, this extraordinary album of gritty stories and melody-drenched music is a tribute to Ward’s close friend Vincent O’Brien.
With ten albums under his belt, and a crack backing band, don’t miss M.Ward performing in this special anniversary tour of one of the greatest blues-inspired Americana albums ever created.
