Hailing from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Minor Matter started as Jeffrey Popiel’s experimental solo project and has grown to include 5 multi-instrumentalists that help bring his carefully crafted originals to life. Drawing on a well-stocked musical tool-box that includes everything from the bassoon and clarinet to glockenspiel and ukulele. Stephanie Unverricht, Heather Lake, Skyler Cafferata and Jon Henderson work with Popiel to seamlessly fuse classical, folk, country, jazz and psychedelic rock.
