Profile: Matthew is a seasoned guitarist who plays both electro-acoustic and electric guitar as gorgeous solo instruments and as mellow accompaniment to classic and original songs. He is an accomplished singer, songwriter and guitarist.
Matthew’s style owes a great deal to masters like John Martyn and Peter Green while also being firmly rooted in the English pop and folk tradition, both as a strummer and as a finger-picker. He can at times conjure the sound of multiple players while still retaining the intimacy of the guitar as a solo instrument. Every set list includes not only gentle, lilting pieces but also upbeat toe-tappers to get the party started and swinging.
Matthew brings a melodic magic to enhance the atmosphere of any event. Enjoy his latest video on our YouTube channel ‘Allegro Arts Live Music’.
