I booked Matthew for a 50th birthday party. He plays from a mind-blowing setlist of hundreds and hundreds of songs from a huge range of decades. Every request was met. We’re huge Mumfords fans and by all accounts, he can play their full back catalogue! A great guy to deal with and, without a shadow of a doubt, one to watch.

Great entertainer - adaptable in most situations - weddings,parties, funerals and charity balls + large events like festivals and New Years. And host of the best open Mic in the city at the Strathduie Bar, Blackfriars St., Glasgow every Wed night from 8:00pm.
