Matt The Music Man

March 12 at 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Matt the Music Man (Matthew McFarlane) is a multi-award winning lad with a pirate hat and a platypus for a sidekick! In 2023 he won the ECMA for Children’s Entertainer of the Year! Cool beans! If you see him, he’ll have your whole family singing, clapping, laughing and rocking out. It’s a party!

Matt also promotes self-confidence for kids. Growing up, Matt was very shy and was bullied at school. He spent much of his time having dreams about becoming a professional musician but his shyness and lack of self-confidence were too overwhelming. Today, Matt draws on these childhood experiences to inspire kids with his message of becoming self-confident through super fun music!

After about 20 years of performing, Matt was inspired to become a children’s musician upon the arrival of his first child. He has released three diverse all-original albums titled “The Best at Being You” (2022), “Everyday Superheroes” (2017), and “Songs For Kids Age 1 to 101” (2014) as well as an EP, “Family Fun” (2018).

Many exciting shows have been performed across the Canadian Maritimes and beyond. Matt plays Guitars, ukulele, harmonica & kazoo, and uses fun props such as costumes and puppets to create a fun, interactive and educational experience. Through music, humour and stories, Matt teaches children about the importance of self-confidence and respect. It all comes together into a highly entertaining educational show for children and families!

Many songs have been hits with children and parents such as “Everyday Superheroes”, “Dinosaur In the Candy Store” and “Pirates from Yarmouth”. Matt makes a point to not downplay his music lyrically or musically too much for children because he understands how smart children are and he wants older audiences to be entertained as well. The smiles, laughs and voices singing along (even the parents!) are rewards that drive Matt as he continues his lifelong dream of performing music.
