Each time we host musicians highly accomplished in their genre. To kick things off we have...
Award-winning harmonica player and blues singer Mat Walklate, who will be joined by two exceptional British blues musicians: Dr Tom Attah and Alex Haynes.
We hope to bring the Blues back to Glossop, with future events featuring Franny Eubanks, Kyla Brox and a host of other great UK Blues artists, on the third Sunday of every month
Tom Attah is a forceful, engaging and ebullient performer, with a mighty voice, stinging guitar and a ready wit. Doctor Tom is the proud owner of a PhD in Blues! His set with harmonica-player and singer Mat Walklate is predominantly acoustic, and features classic Blues songs, some of Tom's original compositions, and some songs written jointly with Mat, that appear on his latest album, Sea Of Blues
Alex Haynes' intensity and originality have seen him cut a swathe across the Blues scene of the UK and Europe, with his superb song writing, soulful singing and dazzling guitar. His latest album, Howl, was recently released by the Italian label, Appaloosa:
His set with Mat Walklate, on vocals and harp, is all-electric and mostly original, mixing Alex's songs with new numbers penned by Alex and Mat, plus some well-chosen classics.
