Matt Andersen

Born in New Brunswick, Matt Andersen is a Juno Award-winning blues guitarist. He guested on Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Cafe Christmas tour a few years ago, and also headlined a main stage gig at the 2014 Regina Folk Festival.

On Thursday Feb. 25, Andersen will be in town to play a show as part of the Regina Folk Festival Concert Series. He’s touring in support of a new album called Honest Man, and the show is at Darke Hall. The support act is the Bona Fide and curtain is at 8 p.m.

You can find out more on the RFF website. Here’s video from 2014 of Andersen playing a song called “So Easy” on CBC’s Studio Q:


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
