Mat Walklate-Harmonica & Vocals Paolo Fuschi-Guitar & Vocals Mat and Paolo play a diverse, dynamic live set illustrating all shades of Blues and allowing each other’s instrumental, vocal and improvisational qualities to shine. Each performance is rock-solid, yet full of inspiration and spontaneity. Mat and Paolo are an "Electric Blues Duo” from Manchester. They use old tube amplifiers creating a rich tone that brings the listeners back to the very early days of the 1950’s Chicago Blues. Think of Muddy Waters plugging in his red Telecaster for the first time into an old tube amplifier and Little Walter blowing his harmonica through an old Fender Champ amplifier. The result is a magical performance that stands out for its intensity and energy. Although there are two people on stage, they sound like a 10 piece Blues band. Living in Manchester and strongly influenced by its Afro-Caribbean community, Mat and Paolo also pay homage to Ska, blending its uplifting rhythms with the spirit and sentiment of the Blues. The Blues reaches everybody, everywhere, every time. Walklate and Fuschi incarnate the spirit of the Blues and its universality. The two bluesmen have different cultural backgrounds but when it comes to play the Blues, they speak the same language. They let the music do the talking. For Mat and Paolo it is crucial to connect with their listeners whether emotionally or with simple “sing-along” moments, creating a warm atmosphere that makes everybody feel welcome.
