Matt Bednarsky, a singer and songwriter who grew up in Shelton and now lives in Nashville, will perform Saturday, Dec. 20 at 8 p.m. at the Huntington Street Cafe in Shelton.

Bednarsky will be playing a variety of songs — some solo, and some with a band consisting of Michael J Donovan, Michael L’Altrella, and his father Bruce Bednarsky.

Musician Georgia Feroce will open the show.

Bednarsky is a 2005 graduate of Shelton High School, where he was active with the drama club, choir and a cappella music groups.

He graduated from New York University in 2009 and then lived in New York for awhile. To pursue his music career, he later moved to Nashville — known as Music City — and has been busy writing songs and performing ever since.

Bednarsky described his music style as being pop-rock with traces of folk, jazz and blues. “Somewhere between James Taylor and John Mayer,” he said.
