Event description

Description

Matt Woosey is no stranger to performing in Malvern, having been a regular stalwart of the Malvern Music scene for many years, whilst being resident here.

However, now he is based in Germany, this is a welcome opportunity for him to return home and make his debut here at Elmslie House.

Matt is often described as "one of the acts that is currently lighting up the British scene”, Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2

“Like the British Blues pioneers before him, he is rearranging the Blues and reminding American audiences it doesn’t have to be formulaic and tedious”, Jim Kanavy, Blues Blast Magazine, USA

“What makes Matt rather special is the sheer originality of his playing and singing”, Music-News.com

“Matt Woosey’s guitar playing is simply brilliant”, Americana UK

Matt Woosey’s time is now. His eighth studio album, Desiderata, captures the most daring and progressive music of his career. His acclaimed solo shows dart between folk, roots, ambient and electronica.

He’s an artist who slips the creative straightjacket of the modern industry, a trailblazer with no reverse gear, a performer who drags the acoustic guitar kicking and screaming into fresh relevance. “You’ve got to keep progressing,” says the former Malvern-based singer-songwriter. “Like John Martyn. Like Robert Plant. Like Radiohead...”

Now living and playing in Germany, Matt has found a group of musicians who join him on the road and add ever changing dynamics to his music. Whether it be the simplicity of an acoustic duo or the full power of his dual-lead-guitar electric band or any combination in between, Matt’s music is reaching new places musically and otherwise, seemingly with no stage being too big or too small for the progressive and determined songsmith.
