About the Event
Howlin' Mat has lived an almost nomadic lifestyle to become one of the hardest working solo blues acts around with gigs all over the UK and Europe. Howlin' Mat started his blues journey some 15 years ago playing material by the likes of Robert Johnson, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Earl Hooker, Robert Nighthawk, and Hound Dog Taylor. He gained quite a reputation as a slide guitarist and in particular, for his skills on the cigar box guitar. Sadly whilst the pandemic in 2020 meant that his touring had to stop, it gave him the opportunity to blend his blues roots with the heavier styles of artists like Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry and the Black Keys. Howlin' Mat is very much looking forward to touring this voodoo gumbo of heavy blues.
