Dirt Road Opera
The term “you never know what the future holds” is as good a touchstone as there is when it comes to understanding the genesis of Canada’s roots band, Dirt Road Opera. That the members in the group, Barry Mathers, Rachel Matkin and Robert Bailey have intersected in a multitude of scenarios over the past quarter century serve as the foundation for this group, whose members officially announced their union a few months before the world was hit with a pandemic. At the core of Dirt Road Opera is an abundance of experience and talent that has been recognized by music lovers, the media, concert promoters, and festival producers across the country for over a couple of decades. www.dirtroadopera.ca
