The Faith & Art Series of St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church is proud to present Jonathan Byrd for an evening of poetry, essays, and songs on Friday, March 2nd at 7:30 p.m. Jonathan Byrd is a preacher’s son, a Gulf War veteran, and an award-winning songwriter from Carrboro. He is known for literary and outsider songs of love, life, and death in the small towns and byways of America. He has toured widely in the US and in Canada and Europe.  Folk legend Tom Paxton discovered Byrd’s music online: “What a treat to hear someone so deeply rooted in tradition, yet growing in his own beautiful way.” The Chicago Tribune called Byrd “one of the top 50 songwriters of the past 50 years.”
