Enjoyable interview!

Matt Witroba has a ringing tenor voice similar to Peter Yarrow, and the folksy singalong words and music of Fred Small. Thanks for the interview, Mark!

Folk Alley

Folk Alley is the sound track of our home and life. Always enjoy Matt and appreciated a chance to hear him as a performer. Good one Mark.
