Musicians Matt and Rebecca Stuart of Minstrel Streams

An Afternoon with Minstrel Streams

Art Presence invites you to Matt and Rebecca Stuart of Minstrel Streams’ next performance, a live concert of their original music, on Sunday, August 12 from 2–4 pm.

Minstrel Streams (Matt and Rebecca Stuart) is a husband/wife musical duo. Matt plays piano/keyboards and acoustic guitar and Rebecca plays flute and Native American flutes. Their inspirational music has been described as a blend of classical, folk, and world music. They are musician/composers and recording artists. Matt and Rebecca dedicate their lives and talent to “sharing the passionate language of music, from our hearts to yours.”

Sergey Oreshkin—whose blog, Ascentor, offers music reviews—says Minstrel Streams “speaks the language of music…you just have to listen to hear words in your heart…weaving subtle and elegant sound patterns through threads of classical, Baroque, Renaissance, Romanticism, and Celtic folk music.”

Bill Binkelman of Zone Music Reporter says of the musical duo, “While listening… I recalled many classic recordings from the days of both Windham Hill and Narada in that the music has that ‘classic’ acoustic sound present on both labels, especially at their outset. There is a sonic richness and an emotional depth present here that goes beyond just ‘good music and well played.’”

You might not know that their critically acclaimed CD “New Horizon,” a GRAMMY contender, was recorded at Will Ackerman’s (founder of Windham Hill Records) legendary Imaginary Road Studios in Vermont, reaching a global audience with radio airplay around the world…becoming a hit on Pandora and Music Choice “Soundscapes.” We hope “Owyhee,” their new DVD, will achieve this status and even greater.

Sure, if you’ve been into the gallery on a weekend or for a reception, you’ve heard our dear friends play. However, this concert series is the first time they’ve played at the gallery where their music is the main focus.

Minstrel Streams’ mission is to promote peace, love, joy, healing, and mercy through music. Minstrel Streams will warm your hearts and souls. Come to Art Presence and share the experience! Whether you’ve missed their previous concerts at Art Presence or you attended and loved their music, please join us for a wonderful afternoon of beautiful music.

Don’t miss their FREE musical performances, taking place on Sundays from 2–4 pm on:

  • March 25
  • June 3
  • August 12
  • October 14
  • December 9
