The Bluffton Town Hall Concert Series welcomes The Matchsellers, old time folk musicians who collect their influences from various regional styles of Bluegrass, Old-Time Fiddle, Hambone, Fiddlesticks, Cajun, Gospel and others.

As featured on NPR’s Mountain Stage Radio Show, The Bluegrass Situation and Bluegrass Today, the Matchsellers are Warsaw, Indiana native Andrew Morris and Julie Bates of Kansas City, Missouri. Their exciting, gritty, and often hilarious stage show has been developed over 6 years of touring across the US and Europe. The two met while working as American Cultural Ambassadors in Germany via the Fulbright Program and began exploring traditional American music from abroad. Their work has delved into subjects as academic as “German-American Musical Exchange” and as wild as “Science Fiction Bluegrass”. While a focus on humor and absurdity permeates their show, they are dedicated interpreters of tradition whose excellent musicianship, songwriting and taste are never overshadowed.

The concert will be on the third floor of the Bluffton Town Hall, 154 N Main St, Bluffton, OH, which is wheelchair accessible. All are welcome; a free-will donation will be taken at the door to pay for the musicians’ travel and expenses.
