On April 14, 2011, Matthew made his debut performance on the Grand Ole Opry and was a invited guest of Grand Ole Opry Star Mike Snider. “Not only was it the biggest event in my life, but it was humbling to stand in that sacred circle and perform where the legends of country and bluegrass music-my musical heroes have stood.”

Imagine JS Bach jamming out with Jethro Tull. Add Miles Davis, Turlough O'Carolan, perhaps a few others... all those sounds melting together creates "Folk Fusion." Since 1990, the husband & wife team of Tom & Laurie Reese have developed their unique style, fusing classical, jazz, folk & original music. A high level of musicianship combines with a strong creative urge, and MuZette takes flight into musical fantasy. This combination of an award-winning composer & a classically trained cellist engages audiences of all ages. MuZette blends classics by Bach, Ellington & O'Carolan bridged by jazz-inspired improvisation.

6:00pm and 7:00 Dinner Seatings are available!
