Scott Matthews

Since scooping an Ivor Novello Award for his first single in 2007, Scott Matthews has continued to emerge as a master of bluesy acoustica. His “elegant, quietly soulful vocal work” (Guardian) and “beautiful…intense” (BBC) lyrics liken him to Paul Simon, Tim Buckley, Nick Drake and John Martyn.  Returning to Bristol with a performance of well-loved tracks and material from the new album, Matthews delivers a stripped-back, acoustic “masterclass in original and layered folk music” (Renowned for Sound).

Support from Ady Johnson.
