Matt Brown Camp Bio

Co-Leader for Fiddle Camp


Hi, my name is Matt, and I'm from West Chester, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. I grew up there, moved to Chicago on my twenty-seventh birthday, and began teaching at the Old Town School of Folk Music the night I arrived. I teach banjo, fiddle, and guitar at the Old Town School, and travel about once a month to perform somewhere in the United States. I recently made a CD of old-time fiddle and guitar duets with my friend Greg. It's called "Speed of the Plow." In addition to playing music, I enjoy watching superhero movies and making delicious food. I particularly like making dark chocolate cashew butter cups with sea salt on top (a homemade alternative to Reese's peanut butter cups).
