Russ Matthews 

My name is Russ Matthews, I’m 34 years old and I’m new to the CBRM area. I’m originally from a little town by the name of River Denys but moved here for work and to pursue my music career. I play a wide range of music, along with my own original songs that are written from the heart and past experiences. Music is my passion and I’m excited to see what the future has in store for me!

Be sure to spend some time in town before and after the show – grab a bite to eat, visit the shops and stay for the night.

Tunes on the Town is a live music series in downtowns throughout Cape Breton Island during summer and fall 2022. The program is supported by funding from the Government of Canada through the Rediscover Main Streets program.
