Mat Walklate is a gifted and versatile musician. A 'name' in the worlds of traditional Irish music, world music, and also in this guise, Blues.

You could safely refer to him as 'Roots Royalty'. As a Harmonica player he has few peers with a feel and skill to die for. As Mike Harding of Radio 2 once said - "One of the best Harmonica players on the planet", and to be honest I wouldn't attempt to argue the point.

No slouch as a vocalist either, singing the blues with a level of authenticity rare in a white performer.

Other talents he possesses are an intelligent, dry, self-deprecating sense of humour and the unerring ability to pick top drawer collaborators.

Paolo, originally from Sicily has also been to us before, in two distinct incarnations. With his own superb blues quartet and also with his truly awesome funk band, the Buffalo Brothers.

A guitarist of endless variation and inimitable skill, Paolo is an eccentric and constantly surprising player and a joy to witness.

Together they are special. 

There is no doubt, as a duo they are truly exceptional but on this occasion, as a bonus, they bring the quartet.  Not often seen, the addition of a startlingly excellent rhythm section takes this to another level.
