Old Annville Day

Matt has sung for us at the Historic Old Annville Day for the past two years and I recommend him highly. His repertoire is vast and varied, including some of his own compositions. And, his arrangements of popular covers make you want to listen like you’re hearing that favorite song for the first time.

He offers that wonderful combination of business professionalism, musical ability and audience interaction we who book talent always yearn for but only sometimes get. He is prompt, he’s a joy to listen to, and he is not fazed by the little glitches that always pop up.

PA Firefly Festival

The Annual Pennsylvania Firefly Festival has had the privilege and benefit of Matt's talent and generosity for 2 years. He consistently delivers an entertaining and engaging show. He uses his musical talents to revive the old standard folk/rock covers, and yet his originals seem like old favorites.

Haycreek Festival at Joanna Furnace - Morgantown PA

Matt is a great performer. He shows up on time, delivers a great set of awesome covers and well written originals. We've had him at the "Haycreek Festival at Joanna Furnace" in Morgantown, for 4 years in a row now, and have him booked already for next year for this event. We never fail to get compliments from people for having him back. His performance is easy to listen to and relate to, and his style is timeless, appealing to young and old alike.

My guests absolutely loved Matt and his music! Everyone enjoyed getting up to dance as well! He was perfect for our parent's 50th anniversary! He even took requests and played their favorite Elvis love songs!

Private Event - Chester Springs PA

Matt entertained for my father-in-law's 80th birthday party. I can't say enough about what a wonderful job he did. Everyone at the party has been talking about his great singing and the selection of music he played. He was very personable and we definitely would recommend him to anyone that is thinking of having him perform at a special event/occasion. We will definitely be calling him again. 

We want to thank Matt for making a special day even more special. He was everything we were hoping for and more.

Community of Lebanon Association - Week of Music

Matt Miskie is a natural. He plays with a keen self-awareness revealed through both his music and his general demeanor: he is sensitive to the environment in which he plays; this speaks to honest musicianship. Matt is kind, receptive, and gentle with his music and with people. I hope to hear him again!

Fall Foliage Weekends - Jim Thorpe PA

Matt is obviously an excellent performer, but is very flexible and a great person to work with. I'd highly recommend him in a festival setting, and as the music coordinator for our town's Fall Festival, it's always nice that I've received many kind words about Matt's performances.

The Thought Lot - Shippensburg PA

Matt is an engaging performer who is great with an audience. Conversant about his songs and their inspiration, he is a master storyteller and his set holds your attention. Speaking as a venue owner, Matt is a pleasure to work with. He is prompt, polite and professional. It is apparent that he cares about his craft and has put in the time to hone his considerable skills. I highly recommend him for whatever event you are considering a singer/songwriter for.

Matt Miskie at Sugarloaf Craft Festival, Chantilly VA

It's axiomatic that listening to even a talented performer sing the same five songs for three days straight is enough to drive a craft festival vendor to distraction. This weekend, while exhibiting at the Sugarloaf Craft Festival in Chantilly VA, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the ongoing concert presented by Pennsylvania singer/songwriter Matt Miskie kept me energized and actively listening to the wide songbook of folk favorites he offered. It even got me dancing, which made me less wistful for the music-rich life I enjoy -- and dance to -- in Sarasota.

With a melodic voice that seamlessly blends elements of Jackson Browne, James Taylor, and Gordon Lightfoot, Miskie's arrangements of familiar songs from the Sixties and more contemporary numbers had depth, variety and richness of tone and phrasing.
His rhythm guitar playing, inflected with simple intro runs, nicely backed up the vocals. Rhythm alone, without lead breaks, can be boring and repetitive, especially at solo gigs, but Miskie's technique somehow worked to support the overall sound.

Appalachian Trail Festival - Duncannon PA

Miskie brought his folksy style to Duncannon, PA, delivering an interesting collection of original tunes about his love for nature, the outdoors, and his native Pennsylvania. His pleasant voice and engaging stage presence provided a fitting atmosphere for the Duncannon Appalachian Trail Community's celebration of the Appalachian Trail, that national treasure that passes through this rural Pennsylvania town.
